Course Description

Courses offered for ASHA CEUs are described in the past tense because the course descriptions appear verbatim on participants' transcripts following their satisfactory completion of the course.

CEUs

The number of CEUs offered for a course (a) is determined by the time-ordered agenda and (b) reflects the maximum amount of ASHA CEUs that one may earn following successful completion of the course. One hour of contact educational time equals 0.1 ASHA CEUs. CEUs may be offered in half-hour increments.
