Renewal Information for Arkansas SLPs

Arkansas SLP License Renewal

Arkansas-licensed SLPs can earn all 10 required CE hours through online coursework for renewal

Arkansas-licensed Speech-Language Pathologists (SLPs) are required to renew their licenses annually on June 30th. 10 hours of continuing education are required per year to renew (15 if dual-licensed).

The Arkansas Board of Examiners in Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology provides the following continuing education guidelines on their website:

Continuing Education

Continuing Professional Education (CPE) shall consist of a series of planned learning experiences beyond the educational programs that have led to the degree that qualifies one for licensure. The licensee must participate in CPE activities of at least ten (10) clock hours for each license period (July 1 through June 30 of each year). At least five (5) of these hours must be in Content Area I. Dual licensees must complete fifteen (15) clock hours with a minimum of five (5) hours in each discipline from Content Area I. Renewal of a license shall be contingent upon the licensee fulfilling the CPE requirements, submitting an annual CPE report, and maintaining evidence for possible audit.

Provisional and full licensees are not required to complete a report of continuing professional education and will not be audited during the initial licensing year, but will need to submit the report to document a minimum of ten (10) hours for the next licensing period (7/1 to 6/30). There is no exemption for the year in which the provisional license is converted to a full license unless it occurs in the initial licensing year.

Full instructions including definitions of content areas and audit information can be found in Section 9 of the rules and regulations.

SLPs in Arkansas may earn all 10 of their required CE hours through online and/or home study coursework. The Board does not pre-approve providers, but does accept courses that are offered by ASHA-approved providers.

Professional Development Resources is approved by the Continuing Education Board of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) to provide continuing education activities in speech-language pathology and audiology. Over 20 online and home study courses available for SLPs @ https://www.pdresources.org/Index.aspx
