How many CEUs are required to keep my CCC current?

Thirty hours or 3.0 CEUs in a 36-month cycle. Your start date for this requirement depends on the year you initially earned your CCC. For more information, visit the ASHA certification page.

NOTE: *You cannot start accumulating hours toward this requirement until the year you are scheduled to initiate your professional development hours.

Do the Professional Development hours have to be ASHA CE Activities?

No. Professional development is any activity that relates to the science and contemporary practice in Audiology, Speech-Language Pathology and Speech, Language & Hearing Sciences. Hours can be accumulated from employer-sponsored inservices or other continuing education activities that contribute to professional development, as well as activities by ASHA continuing education providers for CEU’s. For further information, please refer to ASHA’s Definition of Professional Development and Acceptable Activities.

How do I document my hours?

You will submit one form, Maintenance of the Certificate of Clinical Competence, every three years. This will be sent to you at the beginning of your 3-year period of renewal. You can list your activities on this. Your signature on this form provides the assurance that you have met the requirements. Only those certificate holders who are selected for the review audit will be required to also submit supporting documents such as copies of certificates of attendance. (Just like our state licensure). Forms can be found on the ASHA website.

Do I need a temporary license to do my CFY?

Our state does not have a temporary license, so your CF is completed under the license of your supervisor. Once you have completed CF requirements then you can apply for licensure. This will limit your ability to see Medicaid patients in Utah, as you must have a license in order to do so.

Once you complete the CF process, your supervisor can help you get started with the licensure process. It can also be found on their website http://www.dopl.utah.gov/

Conference Registration

Where do I find conference registration?  After you log on to the website, go the user dashboard. You will find Conference Registration on the menu at the left. If you are not a member of USHA but want to attend the conference, you will need to join USHA at the free “Friend of USHA” level. That will allow you to access the user dashboard.

Third Party Registration

If you need to pay for multiple people to attend the annual conference, go to USHA Conference on the main page. Under the drop down box you will see Vendor Table/Bulk Registration FAQ. Click on that and you will find directions for multiple registrations, plus a video showing how to do it.

 If you have questions, contact our membership chair at Cheryl.winfree@nebo.edu.
