Temporary Registration

Temporary Registration

An applicant may be granted temporary registration by the registrar for a period of up to 90 days if a registrant is in good standing in a full, practising class with a regulatory body governing the practice of social work in the USA or Canada.

  • The registration of a person who has been granted temporary registration may be renewed once for an additional period of up to 90 days.
  • A temporary registrant may only represent themselves as a temporary registrant.
  • A temporary registrant may practise social work as if they were a full registrant, subject to any terms, limits or conditions imposed by the registration committee on the practice of temporary registrants as a class.
  • A temporary registrant may practice social work as defined in the Act, but may not undertake clinical social work (diagnosing mental disorders).
