NOTE: If your situation changes and you need to switch profiles, please contact us so we can ensure your CE information is routed appropriately.

I do not pay ASHA for CE Registry
This option is for SLPs who do not pay to use the ASHA CE Registry. This could be because you are not affiliated with ASHA, do not maintain your CCCs, or choose to maintain your own CE hours, which ASHA refers to as Certification Maintenance Hours, or CMHs. If the latter applies to you, save your Certificate of Completion as it qualifies as your ASHA Verification of Attendance form. If you select this option, your CE information will NOT be sent to the ASHA CE Registry. If you are not affiliated with ASHA, we recommend you contact your licensing and/or certification organization to confirm whether you can earn credit for watching our eLearning content. For some professionals, your personalized Certificate of Completion may meet the criteria necessary to earn CE credit!

 

I pay ASHA for CE Registry
This option is for SLPs who pay annually to use the ASHA CE Registry to maintain their CE hours (info about the ASHA CE Registry below). Once you've completed a module, passed the test, and finished the evaluation, we will submit your CE information to ASHA at the end of that month at no additional cost. ASHA will then award credit within the ASHA CE Registry (assuming you meet all of their requirements). For inquiries about credit awarded or not awarded within the CE Registry, ask ASHA directly.
