How do I complete a course with SpeechPathology.com?
After participating in a live, recorded or text-based course, you will be required to obtain a passing score of 80% on a multiple-choice examination. You will be given immediate feedback regarding the results of your exam and the opportunity to repeat the exam once if necessary. You are required to complete the exam within 7 days of a live event or within 30 days of the course selection date for a recorded or text-based course. If you do not complete the exam within those time parameters you will not be able to earn CEUs/Hours for that course. You can access your CE Tests by clicking on the 'Pending Courses' option under the Continuing Education menu at the top of the page. After completing a successful exam, the subscriber will be required to complete a course evaluation in order to receive a certificate of completion for the course. Please note that you will not be allowed to complete more than 10 hours of coursework on any calendar day.
Once I earn my CEUs at SpeechPathology.com, how do I get my CEUs listed in the ASHA registry or show proof of SAC CEEs?
If you are a member of the ASHA (American Speech-Language Hearing Association) registry and would like SpeechPathology.com to report your coursework to that registry, you must check Yes for ASHA reporting on the pre-exam page during the CE test process for each course. You will also need to have your ASHA account number in your profile on our site. If you have not already entered this number, you can do so in multiple ways: you can enter it on the pre-exam page when you take a CE test; you may call us toll free at 800-242-5183 and provide this information over the phone; or you may click on "Account settings" under your name in the upper right corner of every page to update this number in your Professional Information. This information must be entered or updated in your SpeechPathology.com account within 5 days of passing your CE test for a given course or the CEUs will NOT be reported to the ASHA registry.
SpeechPathology.com will electronically report your coursework to the ASHA registry as long as the instructions are followed in the previous paragraph. Please allow up to three months for credit from SpeechPathology.com continuing education activities to appear on your official ASHA registry transcript.
Speech-Language and Audiology Canada (SAC)
SAC accepts the SpeechPathology.com Certificate of Completion as proof of completion of CEEs. Simply access your SpeechPathology.com transcript, print the Certificate of Completion for the course you have completed, and retain it for your records.
Who keeps track of how many CEUs have been earned?
SpeechPathology.com maintains a transcript of CE activities obtained on SpeechPathology.com for you. After you login, select the 'Continuing Education' option at the top of the navigation menu. Click on 'Transcripts'. You may access this page at any time to view courses that you have completed. Please note that this is not an official ASHA registry transcript.
The ASHA CEU registry keeps track of CEUs for participants who have satisfactorily completed an ASHA registered continuing education activity, provided their ASHA registration number, marked that they want their CEUs reported and have paid their annual ASHA CE registry fee. You must contact ASHA headquarters directly regarding your ASHA CEU Registry questions/comments. You may reach ASHA at 1-800-498-2071.
Do I have to be a member of ASHA to have CEUs listed in the ASHA registry?
No, however, if you would like to be enrolled in the ASHA CEU Registry Database you must pay the required annual fee directly to ASHA. SpeechPathology.com will not verify whether or not you are currently enrolled in the ASHA CEU Registry or the number of CEUs recorded on your ASHA transcript. You must contact ASHA headquarters directly regarding your ASHA CEU Registry questions/comments. You may reach ASHA at 1-800-498-2071. SpeechPathology.com maintains a transcript of CE activities obtained on SpeechPathology.com for you. After you login, select the 'Continuing Education' option at the top of the navigation menu. Click on 'Transcripts'. Please note that this is not an ASHA registry transcript.
What is the difference between CEUs and the length of a course (course hours)? How does this relate to CEEs?
Course length is reported differently by ASHA and SAC. ASHA uses the internationally recognized Continuing Education Unit (CEU) as the standard unit of measuring participation in a continuing education course. One (1.0) CEU is defined as 10 hours of participation in coursework. Therefore, a single hour of participation in a course is equal to 0.1 CEUs. SAC's Continuing Education Equivalent (CEE) is based on clock hours so a 1 hour course is equal to 1 CEE. Therefore, a course that is 2 hours in length listed on SpeechPathology.com would be listed for 0.2 CEUs with ASHA and 2 Hours (CEEs) with SAC.
I was viewing my SpeechPathology.com e-Learning transcript and I saw two messages "Reported to ASHA" and "Will report to ASHA". What do these messages mean?
You must verify that your account information at SpeechPathology.com (SP) is up-to-date and indicate your reporting preferences prior to completing a CE test to ensure that your CEU credits are reported properly to the ASHA CE registry. If your profile is not up-to-date, this would result either in failure of SP to report your CEUs, or reporting of inaccurate information to the ASHA CE Registry.
Remember that this reporting feature is only required if you are a member of the ASHA registry and would like that registry to maintain a record of your CEU courses. If you maintain your own CEU records or report them manually you may print out the CE Verification forms from your SP transcript as proof of CEU course completion.
Here are additional specific questions and answers about these two notices.
"Courses Reported to ASHA"
Why have my completed courses not been sent to the ASHA registry - 'Will Report to ASHA'?
There is an approximate 30 to 60 day delay between when a course is completed and when a course is reported by SP to the ASHA CE registry, depending on the type of course, and the date it was completed.
For Live events, please allow 45 days following the event before contacting the SP CE Administrator using the contact form on our web site.
For Self –Study activities (text-based courses and recorded courses), please allow 45 days following the end of the calendar month during which the course was completed before contacting the SP CE Administrator using the contact form on our web site.
Why is my course shown as reported by SP, but it is not on the ASHA registry?
SP cannot verify information posted on your ASHA registry transcripts. You can verify that your coursework was reported to the ASHA registry by contacting ASHA two weeks after the reporting date listed on your SpeechPathology.com transcript for a given course. If the ASHA registry indicates they have not received a reported course from SP, please contact the SP CE Administrator using the contact form on our web site.
