It’s summer! Time to rest, relax, renew – and take CEUs!
 
As speech therapists, we are required to maintain our licensure and American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) certification by attending continuing education courses. Fortunately for us as SLPs, the resources are endless! To maintain our ASHA Certificate of Clinical Competence (CCC), speech-language pathologists (SLPs) must earn 3.0 continuing education units (CEUs) over three years. To convert that to hours of professional development, 0.1 CEU is equivalent to one hour of certification maintenance hours. State licensure CEU requirements vary.
Here is a selection of our favorite, affordable, online CEU opportunities for SLPs. Enjoy!
