In reading the letters in the Nov. 4 issue of The ASHA Leader, I’m glad to see my own sentiments expressed by Shannon Weatherby in relation to CEUs. As a professional, I support the need for continuing education; however, I also find the new CEU requirements costly and time-consuming.
Many employers will not pay for continuing education and many clinicians, myself included, who are currently not working have to take on the expense ourselves in order to maintain our certification. I also find a conflict of interest in ASHA offering, and certainly profiting from, CEUs and yet requiring them as well.
I’d love to see some portion of our yearly dues go towards free and convenient CEU offerings instead of just a journal.
