ASHA CE Policies and Resources

These policies reflect how Providers maintain compliance, including the administrative and operational issues and tasks that must be included in their processes and procedures. The policies are presented here in the general sequence that a Provider might follow, from applying through course planning and reporting.

Policies that support a specific Standard for CE Providers are linked to that standard. Relevant resources are hyperlinked within the policies and/or included in the Resource box on each page.

ASHA CE Providers are expected to comply with these policies by July 1, 2025. Use this checklist [PDF] to assess your organization's readiness.
