The American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) defines one Continuing Education Unit (CEU) as 10 contact hours of participation in an organized CE experience offered by a provider, excluding meals and breaks. The contact hour is defined as 1 clock hour (60 minutes) of interaction between a learner and instructor or between learner and materials that have been prepared to facilitate learning.

ASHA requires thirty hours or 3.0 CEUs in a 36-month cycle to maintain certification (CCC). Your start date for these requirements depends on the year you initially earned your CCC.

If renewal of certification is not accomplished within the 3-year period, certification will lapse. Re-application for certification will be required, and certification standards in effect at the time of re-application must be met.
