Live workshops are FREE for SDSLHA members and $15 each for non-members.

Continuing Education 
  • Live workshops will be registered for ASHA Continuing Education credit and a certificate of attendance will be issued.
  • Recorded workshops will be available when presenters agree to allow recording. These will be available to SDSLHA members to complete for a certificate of attendance. ASHA CE credit will not be submitted for viewing of recorded workshops. Attendees may choose to use submit self-recorded Certification Maintenance Hours (CMH). See below for details.
  • Using a Certificate of Attendance for ASHA Certification Renewal: Self-recorded CMHs are activities you complete and document, instead of being tracked by the ASHA CE Registry. You do not need to obtain prior approval from ASHA for the activities you choose. The activities will count toward your 3 year interval as long as they meet ASHA’s certification maintenance standard for professional development and acceptable activities. You are required to maintain your own documentation for all self-recorded CMHs. You will only need to submit documentation to ASHA if you are notified of being selected for an audit.
