The Child Welfare Academy Training Program does NOT follow the local public school system’s schedule. In the event of inclement weather the training schedule will follow the Maryland State Government delay and closings. This policy affects all trainings held at the School of Social Work as well as regionally in the local department. On the day of training, please check your local news station to confirm the Maryland State Government operating status. If Maryland State Government is closed or following a liberal leave schedule, the training is canceled. If Maryland State Government has a delayed opening, the training will follow the adjusted time.


Continuing Education Units (CEUs) will only be provided for full attendance of an in-service training. Staff will not receive partial credit for attending portions of the training.

Individuals who miss more than 30 minutes of a training for any reason (e.g. traffic, work issues, family, illness) will not be eligible to receive CEUs for their participation.

Staff who miss more than 30 minutes of training are welcome to audit the class.

If at any point, including the day of the offering, you realize that you will not be able to attend or you have already taken the training, please DROP the offering in the LearnCenter as soon as possible. This allows CWA to admit waitlisted registrants or make sure the offering has sufficient registrations to proceed. CLICK HERE to log into the LearnCenter.
