About Us

Our mission is to provide more than an online course. We have been helping social workers achieve their licensure with online educational resources since 2009. Our goal is to provide a robust, hands-on experience catered towards individuals preparing for the LSW, LMSW, LCSW, and LISW. Our unique test-taking methodology and content for the ASWB exam will help refine your knowledge and evaluate your test-taking strategy: and you can do this 24/7, at times that work for your busy life. We enable you to be the detective and uncover the concept being tested in each question. Our course is supplemented with practice exam questions, test readiness assessments with Passitpro experts, one-on-one tutoring with a social work teacher and expert, and additional resources to help you achieve your social work license. Passitpro’s course is also recommended by #10 NASW state chapters and has provided training to more than 600 social workers.

Idelle Datlof, LISW-S

Idelle Datlof lives in Cincinnati Ohio. She received her MSW from the University of Michigan in 1971 and has worked in a community mental health setting as a therapist, supervisor and administrator, followed by a decade in private practice. After taking the Clinical test in 2009 she began tutoring social workers; this gave her the opportunity to observe directly which skills and content are necessary for mastery of the ASWB exams. In May 2013, she created a 5 hour online course which teaches and explains the essential exam content. To this she added a live 90-minute training session to teach students the skills to uncover the concept in each question.
