Do I have to be a member of LinguiList™ to participate?

Yes.  LinguiSystems’ FREE CEU Program™ is one of the many benefits of LinguiList™ membership.

What is the difference between CEUs and the course hours?  How does this relate to CEEs?

Course length is reported differently by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) and the Canadian Association of Speech-Language Pathologists and Audiologists (CASLPA).

ASHA uses the internationally recognized Continuing Education Unit (CEU) as the standard unit of measuring participation in a continuing education course.  One (1.0) CEU is defined as 10 hours of participation in coursework.  Therefore, a single hour of participation in a course is equal to 0.1 CEUs.

CASLPA’s Continuing Education Equivalent (CEE) is based on clock hours; a one-hour course is equal to one CEE.

What is the difference between the online, Source®, and DVDs for Groups™ courses?

The online courses are self-study courses designed for the individual to take at their own pace.

The Source® courses are self-study courses designed for the individual to take at their own pace.  They require access to the Source® book for the course.

DVDs for Groups™ are in-service courses designed for five or more participants.  DVDs for Groups™ include a DVD presentation, course handout, and a group discussion segment.

When are new courses offered?

New courses are added every year.  If you have a suggestion for a course please e-mail us at freeceus@linguisystems.com.  Please set your spam filter to accept emails from this address.

Do I have to be a member of ASHA to participate?

No.  Participants who are neither ASHA members nor ASHA certificate holders, and wish to complete our continuing education courses can print a certificate upon completion for their personal records.

For information about ASHA CE requirements or the ASHA CE Registry, contact ASHA at 800-498-2071, ext. 4219 or go to www.asha.org.

How do I get my CEUs listed in the ASHA Registry or show proof of CASLPA CEEs earned?

LinguiSystems corresponds with ASHA within six weeks of your completion date and sends all necessary paperwork to them.

If you are a member of the ASHA CE Registry, LinguiSystems will report your CEUs if you provide us with your ASHA membership number.  Without this number, you will not receive CEU credit from ASHA.

CASLPA accepts the LinguiSystems completion certificate as proof of completion of CEEs.  You are responsible for sending proof of CEEs when audited by CALSPA.  If you would like additional information about CEEs, please contact CASLPA at 1-800-259-8519 or go to www.caslpa.ca.

Will my state accept the hours I earn for a LinguiSystems CE course?

Contact your state to be sure.  Many states accept our courses because we are an ASHA-approved provider.

How soon will my assessment be graded?

Course assessments that do not include case studies are graded immediately upon submission and your score will appear on the screen.
