  • Maximizing Your Continuing Education Credit at the 2018 Convention

  • You can to earn up to 30.5 PDHs or 3.05 ASHA Continuing Education Units (ASHA CEUs) including pre-Convention activities, or up to 26.75 PDHs or 2.65 ASHA CEUs for the three official days of the ASHA Convention. Learn more about how to submit your ASHA Convention activities for continuing education credit.

    Any session that has a four-digit session number carries continuing education credit. All types of CE-eligible programming count towards the maximum earnable amount of continuing education credit, so the ticketed pre-Convention workshops are included in the total. Earning the maximum amount of hours may not be possible for everyone.

    In order to earn as many credits as possible, you must use of every moment of scheduled programming to attend a CE-eligible session—and fill in gaps with poster presentations. This requires very careful planning and may be challenging.

    The day-by-day breakdown is as follows:

    Wednesday: 4 PDHs

    • Attend a pre-convention workshop sponsored by the Massachusetts Speech-Language-Hearing Association (MSHA) or by the American Audiology Board of Intraoperative Monitoring (ticketed; additional fee) = 3 PDHs
    • For those invited to attend, the Researcher-Academic Town Meeting (by invitation only) adds 1 PDH to the total.

    You can still earn up to 26.75 PDHs or 2.65 ASHA CEUs without the pre-Convention workshops. See below for a schedule beginning on Thursday.

    Thursday: 7.75 PDHs (no additional fees or tickets)

    • Attend an oral seminar or technical session during every time block = 6 PDHs
    • If you take advantage of all scheduled breaks between oral seminars or technical sessions to attend poster/e-poster presentations or hands-on labs, you can earn an additional 1.75 PDHs. Each poster equals 15 minutes of PDHs, and the break schedule allows up to 7 poster visits = 1.75 PDHs.

    Friday: 9 PDHs (no additional fees or tickets)

    • Attend an oral seminar or technical session during every time block = 7 PDHs
    • Visit a combination of poster/e-poster presentations and/or hands-on labs during scheduled breaks = 2 PDHs
