What does the ASHA CE Registry do to determine eligibility?

If we receive participant information for an attendee who is not in our database as an "eligible" Registry user, we will send an e-mail requesting the individual provide documentation of eligibility prior to awarding ASHA CEUs. An individual must have at least one eligibility criteria at the time they complete a course to be eligible to earn ASHA CEUs.

If I'm not eligible to earn ASHA CEUs, can I attend courses offered by ASHA Approved CE Providers?

Each ASHA Approved CE Provider sets the pre-requisites for their course. If you meet the pre-requisites to attend the course, you can attend but you would not be able to earn ASHA CEUs. Unless you meet the eligibility requirements to earn ASHA CEUs, do not indicate to the provider that you wish to earn ASHA CEUs.

If I earned ASHA CEUs prior to 7/1/2011 but I'm no longer eligible to earn ASHA CEUs, what happens to the CEUs I earned?

ASHA CEUs earned prior to 7/1/2011 will be retained on the ASHA CE Registry transcript. If you become eligible in the future to earn ASHA CEUs, complete the Eligibility to Earn ASHA CEUs web form to update your eligibility credentials

If I have never earned ASHA CEUs, how do I establish eligibility?

If you are an ASHA member or ASHA CCC holder, our database will indicate that you are eligible to earn ASHA CEUs. Just following the CE Provider’s instructions to request ASHA CEUs and the ASHA Approved CE Provider will forward your completion records to the CE Registry. If your CE Registry fee has not been paid, you will receive an invoice for the CE Registry service to track and award your ASHA CEUs.

If you are not an ASHA member or CCC holder but you meet any one of the other criteria, follow the CE Provider's instructions to request ASHA CEUs and the ASHA Approved CE Provider will also forward that your completion records to the CE Registry. You can inform us of your eligibility by completing the form on the ASHA CE website. When the CE Registry receives your form, CE staff will contact you via e-mail to obtain eligibility documentation.
