ASHA Health Care & Business Institute 2015
Continuing Education Credits
You may earn ASHA continuing education units (CEUs) or professional development hours (PDHs) for this conference. 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 as well as a 3-hour pre-conference workshop). Earn additional CEUs by adding the PLUS Package.
The reporting deadline for earning continuing education credit for the Health Care & Business Institute is Monday, July 27, 2015, 11:59 p.m. Eastern time. You must report your sessions online by this date to earn ASHA CEUs or PDHs and to receive a Certificate of Completion. 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 27.
If you are a member of the ASHA CE Registry, credits will be reported to the Registry no later than August 10, 2015.
There is a non-refundable $50 fee to initiate an appeal if you do not report by July 27, and appeals are adjudicated individually by the Continuing Education Board and may not be granted. To avoid the expense and uncertainty of an appeal, be sure to enter your CE credits online by July 27! If you have an extenuating circumstance, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or 800-498-2071, ext. 8593, for appeal information.
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)
