MSHA is a Provider of Both ASHA and State Continuing Education Clock Hours (SCECH)
.  Continuing Professional Development works in conjunction with ASHA and the State Board of Education in order to provide Continuing Education Units (CEUs) for our MSHA members. ASHA CEUs and SCECH are always available at our annual conference.

All MSHA members are encouraged to participate in continuing education activities as a commitment to life-long learning, provision of state-of-the-art services and to maintain certification. An update of educational programs throughout the state can be found in each issue of the et cetera and on the MSHA websiteOne easy way to earn CEUs is to attend the upcoming MSHA Conference or the ASHA Convention  Other options for earning ASHA CEUs are available on ASHA's website   Additionally, specific information for maintaining and  tracking ASHA CEUs is also available on the ASHA website.  Not sure of the correct use of terms please see ASHA's Guidance for Correct Use of Terms: CEU, ASHA CEUs, CEU Course.

MSHA also co-sponsors ASHA CEUs for conferences and workshops offered by professional organizations that are not ASHA CEU providers. Please contact Lauren Evans for more information on ASHA Cooperative Agreements.
