ASHA CEUs: NSS online courses are registered with ASHA and are offered for ASHA CEUs. The number of CEUs is noted above. Note that 0.1 CEU = 1 contact hour = equals 1 CEE.
Licensing Boards: Most state licensing boards DO accept CEUs earned online (usually classified as home-study credits). Some state boards do, however, place a limit to the number of credits that can be earned via home study/online courses. For the most current information, we suggest that you contact your licensing board or agency to verify acceptance policies and/or any credit limits related to home-study courses prior to registering for this course.
ASHA CE Registry: During the enrollment process, if you select to receive ASHA credit for this course and if you provide your ASHA number, NSS will automatically submit your CEU information to the ASHA CE Registry after successful course completion (80% on post test). This submission happens once per month, during the first week of the month. For example, if you complete your course on November 7th, NSS will submit all November online course CEUs to ASHA during the first week of December. When ASHA inputs the information into their database, they will mark the course as completed on the last day of the month in which it was completed, so November 30th using this example. The certificate of completion available for you to print immediately, however, will reflect the actual completion date, November 7th in this example. Due to ASHA processing procedures please allow 2-3 weeks, from the submission date, for the course to appear on your ASHA transcript.
ASHA CEUS: Attendees must meet at least one of the following conditions in order to be eligible to earn ASHA CEUs:
If an attendee is not an ASHA member or CCC holder but meets any of the above criteria, they may inform the ASHA CE Registry of their eligibility by visiting this site.

"This course hits on a very valid topic in all settings. As therapist we need to look at staff as professionals and people that need encouraged and educated to provide the best care possible. You get more carryover from a positive attitude and approach then to tell CNA's where they are going wrong. The four E approach is a great strategy for carryover and this can be easily implemented in therapy. Well written and great examples!" – T.B. (Dec. 2016)
"Much needed course; this one is presented in a wonderful organized fashion. Please include video clips of training and of presenter speaking. Reading on computer screen is laborious." – L.H. (Dec. 2016)
"Informative and effective course. Examples and case studies are "spot on". I appreciate the author's formal yet "real world" teaching style. Noteworthy: Effective ways in which to problem-solve and decrease work-related stressors (caseload/patient numbers, productivity expectations, "billable" time, inservices, etc.) for both the SLP as well as the CNA. Knowledge of their individual roles and responsibilities within the workplace is apparent. Well done." – B.D. (Nov. 2016)
