Sunday, July 26. 9am - 4pm

Be prepared. Learn the content and strategies to pass the Bachelor's, Clinical, or Advanced Generalist exam for social work licensing in Michigan!


NASW-Michigan is excited to announce the dates for our annual Social Work Licensure Exam Institutes. These one day workshops will walk limited licensed social workers at both the BSW and MSW levels through the necessary steps to pass the ASWB exam and reduce test anxiety. National leader in exam prep and author, Dawn Apgar, has helped hundreds of Michigan social workers (and thousands nationally) pass the Bachelors, Clinical, and Advanced Generalist exams. 


This year we have added a second date and location to maximize the ability for social workers to pass their exams before the 2021 policy change that will require all work hours complete before one is eligible to take the test.


This seven hour institute includes:

  • Full day comprehensive in-person workshop that covers key exam content areas
  • Comprehensive Study Guide Book - $95 value!

BSW Institute Attendees – Social Work ASWB Bachelors Exam Guide: A Comprehensive Study Guide for Success. 2018. Springer Publishing.

"Dawn gave us the tools we needed to take the exam, and let me tell you – she was on point! Not only did she cover the content areas we needed to focus in on, but she also showed us how to read and interpret the questions on the exam.”
