Effective July 1, 2011, the eligibility criteria for earning ASHA CEUs will change. This explains the new criteria.
Who is eligible to earn ASHA CEUs?
Effective July 1, 2011, individuals must meet at least one of the following conditions in order to be eligible to earn ASHA CEUs.
- ASHA Member (includes Life member and International affiliates)
- ASHA Certificate of Clinical Competence (CCC) Holder
- Licensed by a state or provincial regulatory agency to practice speech-language pathology (SLP) or audiology
- Credentialed by a state regulatory agency to practice SLP or audiology
- Credentialed by a national regulatory agency to practice SLP or audiology
- Currently enrolled in a masters or doctoral program in SLP or audiology
How does this affect course completions with Professional Development Resources?
Professional Development Resources reports course completions to ASHA for SLPs who check ‘yes’ to ASHA reporting in their account profile and provide their 8-digit ASHA number. Checking ‘yes’ to ASHA reporting means that you are eligible to earn ASHA CEUs. Please check ‘no’ if not.
What is the ASHA CE Registry doing to determine eligibility?
In May and June 2011, ASHA will contact current CE Registry users who do not meet the new criteria and ask them to document eligibility. After July 1, 2011, if ASHA receives an ASHA CEU participant form for an attendee who is not in our database as an “eligible” registry user, we will ask them to provide documentation of eligibility prior to awarding ASHA CEUs.
