ISHA ANNUAL CONVENTION CONTINUING EDUCATION PROCEDURES

 

WHAT ARE CONTINUING EDUCATION CREDITS?

Continuing Education Credits are earned by your participation in a short course, seminar, discussion forum, SIRCA, research presentation, poster presentation, instructional/technical session or workshop. Continuing education hours can be earned for state licensure, early intervention credentials, ISBE or for ASHA’s Clinical Competence Certificate. The 2021 ISHA Annual Convention is offered in 2 courses:

1.     ISHA Annual Convention Live Conference & Recordings

Live and Recorded sessions February 4-6, 2021 offers up to 45.5 hours of continuing education

Various Levels
4.55 ASHA CEUs

 

2.     ISHA Annual Convention On-Demand Conference

On Demand sessions offered February 7 – March 31, 2021 offers up to 105 hours of continuing education.

Participants will not be able to count CEUs for previous sessions attended. The online CE registry will prevent participants from counting a session more than once for continuing education credit.

Various Levels
