How do I know if I'm eligible for reinstatement of the CCC?
Reinstatement of the Certificate of Clinical Competence (CCC) may be available to eligible individuals who are considered "not currently certified" after their ASHA certification has expired, or has been resigned, retired, or revoked, and who meet the following criteria:
Where can I find reinstatement policies and procedures, and obtain an application?
You can read the audiology and speech-language pathology reinstatement policies and procedures, and print a copy of the reinstatement application, on the ASHA website.
What is the processing time for a reinstatement application?
Once received at the National Office, please allow approximately 6 weeks for the review of your completed reinstatement application and all additional required documentation. Certification cannot be reinstated until we have verified that all reinstatement requirements have been met.
How many hours of professional development must I complete in order to be eligible for reinstatement?
Evidence needed of professional development hours (certificates of completion/attendance) is based on the number of years you were considered "not currently certified." Eligible professional development hours (PDHs) are those that have been earned no more than 3 years prior to submitting the application for reinstatement.
* If applying for reinstatement within 1 year of becoming "not currently certified," provide evidence of 10 PDHs that were earned no more than 12 months prior to application.
How do I know if I have to retake the Praxis exam?
If your certification has been expired for more than 1 year and your passing Praxis score was achieved more than 5 years prior to your application for reinstatement, then you must retake the exam. No passing Praxis score is required if you are applying for reinstatement within 1 year of becoming "not currently certified." If you are unsure of your eligibility or your expiration date, please contact the Action Center at 800-498-2071 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
What are the dues/fees for reinstatement of the CCC?
The dues/fees for reinstatement of the CCC-SLP or CCC-A are:
New refund policy effective immediately: Applicants who are deemed ineligible for ASHA certification or who voluntarily withdraw their application for ASHA certification within 1 year of the initial application payment date will receive a refund of the initial application fee, less a $50 nonrefundable processing fee. The initial application fee will not be refunded according to the following criteria: (a) after the first dues/fees payment has been made or (b) after 1 year or more from the application payment date, whichever comes first. Applicants who have made a dues/fees renewal payment will receive a refund of only the most recent payment.
