ASHA CEUs and Eligibility
ASHA CEUs are awarded through the ASHA CE Registry to SLPs, audiologists, or speech/language/hearing scientists. To receive ASHA CEUs, eligible persons must join the ASHA CE Registry, which functions like a college registrar. In addition to maintaining a permanent, cumulative record of courses and ASHA CEUs (taken from ASHA Professional Development as well as other providers), you may also request official transcripts from the CE Registry. Learn about the CE Registry.

Joining the Registry is optional. If you are eligible to earn ASHA CEUs, but choose not to join the Registry, you may track your own professional development hours.

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
  • Engaged in a Clinical Fellowship under the supervision of an individual with their ASHA CCC
  • Currently enrolled in a masters or doctoral program in SLP or audiology

What is the ASHA CE Registry?
The ASHA CE Registry is the only service that tracks the ASHA CEUs you earn. The ASHA CEUs are recorded on a transcript that lists all the continuing education courses you have taken through ASHA’s network of Approved Continuing Education Providers.

The ASHA CE Registry functions much like a college registrar. In addition to maintaining a permanent, cumulative record of courses and ASHA CEUs, official transcripts are also issued upon request. The ASHA CE Registry is open to ASHA/NSSLHA members, those who are ASHA certified, and other eligible individuals

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 receive an ASHA CEU Participant form for an attendee who is not in their database as an "eligible" Registry user, ASHA will ask them to provide documentation of eligibility prior to awarding ASHA CEUs.

If you have questions about this new criterion, contact Ellen Fagan, Director of ASHA CE efagan@asha.org

Professional Development Hours and Eligibility
Professional development hours (PDHs) are an alternative measurement unit for continuing education activities. Related professionals, SLP and audiology assistants, and others may receive PDHs.
PDHs from ASHA Professional Development courses apply toward ASHA certification maintenance. You should check with other authorities (such as state license boards or departments of education) to see if they recognize PDHs.

How CEUs/PDHs Are Calculated
Keep the following points in mind while keeping track of your CEUs:

  • One ASHA CEU equals 10 hours of instruction.
  • One PDH equals 1 hour of instruction.
  • Both ASHA CEUs and PDHs are rounded down to the nearest half hour.
