Continuing Education Credit
You may earn ASHA continuing education units (CEUs) or professional development hours (PDHs) for attending Schools Connect, Health Care Connect, and Private Practice Connect. The number of credits you earn depends on the number of sessions you attend.
For this conference, you may earn up to 2.0 ASHA CEUs, or 20.0 PDHs (by participating in all non-overlapping CEU-eligible activities [1.7 ASHA CEUs or 17.0 PDHs] as well as a 3-hour pre-conference workshop). Earn additional CEUs after the conference by adding the
PLUS Package to your registration.
The deadline for reporting your attendance at the conferences to receive ASHA CEUs or PDHs and a certificate of attendance is July 24, 2017, at 11:59 p.m. Eastern time. You must submit your session attendance information via the online system by this date to receive credit for your attendance. If you need a record of the sessions you attended—or think you may need a record in the future—you must report for credit by July 24.
Beginning the first day of the conference, a link for accessing the online reporting system will be available on this page as well as the Connect 2017 homepage.
If you purchase the
PLUS Package, you must still report your attendance at the live event by the July 24 deadline. The PLUS Package will have a separate reporting deadline for recordings only.
If you are a member of the
ASHA CE Registry and report your attendance by the July 24 deadline, credits will be reported to the Registry no later than August 7, 2017.
If you miss the reporting deadline because of an extenuating circumstance, see the ASHA Professional Development
What are ASHA CEUs, and who can earn them?
ASHA CEUs are awarded by ASHA's Continuing Education Board through the
ASHA CE Registry. ASHA CEUs are widely recognized by state licensure boards and other authorities. One ASHA CEU is awarded for 10 hours of continuing education activity.
You may earn ASHA CEUs if you are:
- an ASHA member, life member, or international affiliate
- an ASHA Certificate of Clinical Competence (CCC) holder
- licensed or credentialed by a national, state, or provincial regulatory agency (e.g., a state Board of Education) to practice speech-language pathology or audiology
- engaged in a clinical fellowship under the supervision of an ASHA CCC holder
- currently enrolled in a master's or doctoral program in SLP or audiology
Joining the Registry is optional. If you are eligible to earn ASHA CEUs, but choose not to join the Registry, you may accrue and track PDHs.
What are PDHs, and who can receive them?
Professional development hours (PDHs) are another way of tracking continuing education activities. One PDH equals one hour of continuing education.
You may earn PDHs if you are:
- an audiology or SLP assistant
- a member of a related profession
- not a member of the ASHA CE Registry
PDHs from this conference count toward ASHA certification maintenance. Check with your state license board to learn whether PDHs count toward state license renewals.
Whether you are earning ASHA CEUs or PDHs at this conference, report your hours by following the same online reporting procedures.
This program is offered for up to 2.0 ASHA CEUs (Intermediate level; Professional area)
