 Department of Social Work MSW Field Program

Field Supervisor Training Refresher: Home

Welcome to the UMD Department of Social Work's online MSW Field Supervisor Refresher Training. This course is designed for MSW field supervisors who have already completed either a previous online training and/or an in-person workshop. The intent of this training is to provide supervisors with a review of the knowledge and skills needed to successfully give supervision to our MSW students.

If you are a new field supervisor who has not completed an initial training program, please complete the online course here,or contact Kathy Heltzer at 218-726-8935 for upcoming workshop dates. Completion of one of these training programs is required in order to supervise an MSW student. Supervisors are also required to have continued training at least every three years, which is probably why you are here!

In this course, you will be asked to complete short online quizzes pertaining to the content of the course at the end of each module. This is not a pass/fail course. The main goal is to review how to be a quality supervisor for our students and for the field experience to be a positive one for you, your agency, and the field student.

The entire online training can be completed in approximately two hours. You do not have to complete it all at once and can work at your own pace, as time allows.

When you have completed all of the modules in the training, e-mail Kathy Heltzer, MSW, LICSW, UMD Department of Social Work Field Coordinator to report your completion or if you have any questions about this online course. Kathy can also be reached at 218-726-8935.

Support has been provided by the United States Children’s Bureau. The Department of Social Work was awarded a Children’s Bureau grant to enhance the training of Masters of Social Work (MSW) students for employment in critical settings such as tribal and/or public sector child welfare agencies. Other priorities of the grant are to increase the number of rural and tribal field placements, and to develop supervisor training models that will include on-line training.
