If you're like me, you might love the *idea* of continuing education, but finding the time and money for it is the hard part! In my state (PA), SLP's have historically been required to have a Teaching Certificate, which mandates 180 hours of continuing education every 5 years (that's 36 hours per year), along with the hours we need for ASHA and our state licenses. It can be a headache trying to figure out what counts for which license! Thankfully, I have found some great sites that offer online webinars and courses for free.
Disclaimer: The sites presented in this post provide ASHA-accepted CE hours as far as I understand them; however, it is your professional responsibility to ascertain which hours will be accepted before beginning a course. Information on what counts for ASHA hours can be found here. *
Sarah Wu at Speech is Beautiful wrote a great article on the Top 10 FREE CEU's for Speech Pathologists, so I won't list all of those here. I've found some additional sites that may help you as you try to improve your mind and keep up those CE hours at the same time!
Remember, .1 Continuing Education (CE) hour= 1 ASHA Certificate Maintenance Hour (CMH).
If you follow me on social media, you may have seen that I earned nearly 29 hours in the about 2 months, all for FREE! To make keeping track of the hours easier, I used my CE Tracker, available FREE from my TPT store. It automatically tallies my hours, as well as allowing me to note which count for each type of license (ASHA, CE registry, PA State license, etc.)
I hope these are helpful! Do you know of any other free CEU providers I should add? If so, post to the comments or send me an email (link above)!
