Professional Development

The ASHA Clinical Certification Standards define professional development as an instructional activity
  • where the certificate holder is the learner;
  • that is related to the science or contemporary practice of speech-language pathology, audiology, or the speech/language/hearing sciences;
  • that results in the acquisition of new knowledge and skills, or the enhancement of current knowledge and skills necessary for independent practice in any practice setting and area of practice;
  • where the certificate holder is responsible for determining that the professional development activity is appropriate, relevant, and meaningful to any practice setting and area of practice;
  • in which the certificate holder's attendance can be documented by a third party such as an employer, educational institution, or sponsoring organization.

Your professional development should reflect your selection of acceptable activities and be documented using reporting units called Certification Maintenance Hours (CMHs).
