Audiology 2014: Genetics and Hearing Loss
Continuing Education Credit
Earn Lots of CEUs!
At the Audiology 2014:
Genetics and Hearing Loss online conference you can
earn up to 2.5 ASHA continuing education
units (CEUs) or 25 professional development
hours (PDHs). The amount of units you earn is based on the number
of sessions you complete and chats you attend.
Recorded sessions are available on
demand while the conference is in session. You may listen to them
any time that fits your schedule. Each lecture is planned to be
approximately 1 hour long. The exact duration of each will be
posted in the conference hall.
Each live chat session is 1 hour
long. To receive credit for a chat, you must be logged in for the
full hour. You do not need to post a question to receive credit but
you must be online.
Since the conference is packed with
great information, you will have access to recorded sessions, chat
transcripts, and discussion boards for an additional 2 weeks
(October 28–November 10, 2014) after the conference ends! During this extension, use the archived information for reference only—sorry, continuing education credit cannot be earned after the conference ends on October 27.

About CEUs and PDHs
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. 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
This program is offered for
up to 2.5 ASHA CEUs
Professional Development Hours and
Professional development hours are
an alternative measurement unit for continuing education
activities. Related professionals, SLP and audiology assistants,
and others may receive PDHs.
PDHs from this conference 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. So, for example, if you complete 11 recorded sessions
totaling 11 hours, 38 minutes, and four live chats totaling 4
hours, you would receive 15.5 PDHs, or 1.55 ASHA CEUs.
