Texas-licensed Speech Language Pathologists (SLPs) and Audiologists have a biennial renewal deadline. 20 hours of continuing education (CE) are required to renew (30 hours if dual licensed), including 2 hours of ethics. All of the required hours may be earned through ASHA-approved online CEUs.
The continuing education requirements are intended to maintain and improve the quality of services provided to the public by licensed speech-language pathologists, audiologists, assistants in speech-language pathology, and assistants in audiology. Continuing education credits include courses beyond the basic preparation which are designed to promote and enrich knowledge, improve skills, and develop attitudes for the enhancement of the licensees, thus improving the speech and hearing care to the public.
The licensee is responsible for maintaining a record of his or her continuing education experiences. The certificates, diplomas, registries, or other documentation verifying earning of continuing education hours are not to be forwarded to the board at the time of renewal unless the licensee has been selected for audit by the board.
Professional Development Resources is approved by the Continuing Education Board of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA Provider #AAUM) to provide continuing education activities in speech-language pathology and audiology. See course page for number of ASHA CEUs, instructional level and content area. ASHA CE provider approval does not imply endorsement of course content, specific products or clincial procedures. CEUs are awarded by the ASHA CE Registry upon receipt of the CEU Participant Form from the ASHA Approved CE Provider. Please note that the completion date that appears on ASHA transcripts is the last day of the quarter, regardless of when the course was completed. Texas SLPs can earn all of their required hours through courses available @ www.pdresources.org.
