The Northern Academy offers a variety of topics via online learning to provide social workers with access to much needed training without the concern of travel and overnight stay. Our instructor-guided online courses follow the same structured curricula as their onsite equivalents. Each online course is scheduled for a two-week period. Most courses are also offered four times a year, so it’s easy to find a session that would work with social workers’ busy schedules. The only technical requirement is a computer with a high-speed Internet connection.

COVID-19 and Virtual Training

In addition to the traditional online courses featured in this section, all classroom-based instruction is currently offered as an online/virtual training. To browse all virtual training currently open for enrollment, please visit our Training Tracker page.
