That depends on the state. At least a 4 year college degree and a Masters are mandatory. A Masters can be one or two years. And then there is a requisite for supervised professional practice hours, generally 2000-3000 hours with 200-300 hours of supervision. After that is completed, you need to sit for a licensure exam. And after you pass the exam and get licensed, there is a requisite number of CEUs to take per license year and/or certification period. All told, you're looking at 5-6 years of school, and 2 years of professional service before you are eligible to sit for the exam...and many -- actually most -- don't pass the exam on the first time round. I had one social worker who worked for me, and was quite good at her job, fail it 6 times...that's 3 years, as it was bi-yearly. The CEUs are on-going for as long as you maintain your license. It's generally 15-30 credits per year. but then aqain you have to pass it the first time because who wants to do another 3 years of college and its already tough.so just pass it the first time. thank you for your time

I can only speak for the U.S., and even there laws and regulations very state by state. I have never heard of an associates degree in social work. Years ago, there were no specific education requirements to be a social worker. Nowadays, a "social worker" is an esteemed position. In most cases, even a bachelor's degree in social work is not sufficient to obtain a position as a social worker. An M.S.W. is the standard degree for a social worker. So, measuring from the end of high school, it generally takes five or six years to get an M.S.W. and become a social worker.
