Free CEUs for SLPs

Image of graduation caps in the air.

 

Many companies provide ASHA Continuing Education Units (CEUs) free of charge for Speech-Language Pathologists looking to minimize the cost of continuing education. Below is a list of free ASHA-credited CEUs which can be submitted to ASHA and will show up in the online CE registry. Alternatively, these courses can be used for ASHA certification maintenance hours (CMHs) which will not show up in the CE registry, but will still count towards the 3-year certification maintenance requirement.

More information about PDHs vs. CEUs can be found on ASHAs website

These resources are for educational purposes. Please verify CEU accreditation with provider organization prior to registering for courses.
