WHO IS ELIGIBLE FOR CONTINU- ING EDUCATION CREDIT? If you are registered for Convention, you are eligible for CE credit. Students, SLP and audiology assistants, clinical fellows, and nonmembers are all encouraged to apply for credit. The type of credit you are eligible to earn depends on your profession. See sections below on Professional Development Hours (PDHs) and ASHA Continuing Education Units (CEUs). WHAT ARE ASHA CEUS, AND WHO IS ELIGIBLE TO EARN THEM? ASHA CEUs, widely recognized by state licensing boards and other authorities and accepted as demonstration of continued professional development for maintenance of the ASHA CCC, are awarded by ASHA’s Continuing Education Board through the ASHA CE Registry. One ASHA CEU (1.0 ASHA CEU) is awarded for 10 hours of continuing education activity. You are eligible to earn ASHA CEUs if you are any one of these: • ASHA member, Life Member, or International Affiliate • ASHA Certificate of Clinical Competence (CCC) holder • Licensed or credentialed by a national, state, or provincial regulatory agency (e.g., a state board of education) to practice speech-language pathology or audiology • Clinical Fellow supervised by an individual holding the ASHA CCC • Currently enrolled in a master’s or doctoral program in speech-lan- guage pathology or audiology Eligible persons must join the ASHA CE Registry to receive ASHA CEUs. Joining the Registry is optional. If you are eligible to earn ASHA CEUs, but choose not to join the Registry, you may receive professional development hours (PDHs). Reporting Deadline: December 1, 2018 Convention.asha.org/Continuing-Education-Credit/ How to Submit for Credit To receive credit and earn ASHA CEUs or professional development hours, you must enter your activities in the ASHA Learning Center. This is also the only way to obtain a Certificate of Completion. You may enter your activities after each session, or you may enter all your activities at once after the Convention is over. 1. Keep a personal record of the sessions you attend. You will need each session’s four-digit session number. 2. No later than December 1, 2018, go to convention.asha.org/Continuing-Education-Credit/ 3. Select Enter CE Credit Online to login to the ASHA Learning Center, then follow the instructions provided to enter your sessions. 4. Once you have finished the reporting process, you will be able to print your Certificate of Completion.

If you need a record of the activities in which you participated—or think you may need a record in the future—you must report for credit by December 1. Everyone should follow this process—including ASHA members, students, Clinical Fellows, audiology and speech language pathology assistants, and nonmembers. It is the only way to officially document your attendance and partic- ipation at this event. You do not need to join the ASHA CE Registry to document your CE activities using this process.
