Conducting a Cooperative Offering
If you want to offer ASHA CEUs for an upcoming course but are not ready (or there is insufficient time) to apply for ASHA Approved CE Provider status, conducting a cooperative offering with an ASHA approved CE Provider is the way to go.
Why Conduct a Cooperative CE Offering?
Exposure and Recognition
Over 166,000 professionals each year look for the ASHA CE Provider Brand Block when seeking continuing education programs to meet their needs. The ASHA CE Provider Brand Block indicates that the program meets high standards and offers ASHA CEUs that are applicable toward licensure renewal, career advancement, and the ASHA Award for Continuing Education (ACE). Because your organization's course will be registered on the ASHA CE Registry, it will be listed on ASHA' s Web site through the ASHA CE Course Search, a searchable database that lists only CE courses that are being offered by ASHA Approved CE Providers. The ASHA CE Course Search is updated frequently and provides individuals with access to the more than 33,000 course offerings registered annually with the ASHA CE Registry.
Become Familiar with ASHA CEB Requirements
The cooperative CE offering process gives you an inside view of the procedures ASHA Approved CE Providers follow when planning, implementing, and evaluating their CE courses. After conducting a cooperative CE offering, you can make a more informed decision about pursuing ASHA Approved CE Provider status.
Note: The cooperative CE offering process was established to (a) expose potential ASHA CE Provider applicants to ASHA CEB policies, procedures and guidelines, and (b) enable parties who seldom present courses to speech-language pathologists and audiologists to offer ASHA CEUs. Organizations that regularly offer CE activities that relate to the practice or science of speech-language pathology or audiology and wish to offer ASHA CEUs for those courses should apply for ASHA Approved CE Provider status.
