Hearing First is currently an accredited CE provider through the Alexander Graham Bell Academy for Listening and Spoken Language® (AG Bell), the American Academy of Audiology (AAA), and the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA). You may be able to use Hearing First Certificates of Completion to claim CE credits from your employer or school, depending on their criteria.
Yes, you can use the Certificate of Completion for all continuing education requirements for any professional organization deemed appropriate to your credentials. Also, it replaces the need to submit a separate Alexander Graham Bell Academy for Listening and Spoken Language® form.
According to ASHA, it can take up to 8 weeks for a course to show up on your transcript. If you have completed a Hearing First course and you requested ASHA CE credits, Hearing First sends your name on a roster to ASHA. After 8 weeks, if your credits are not recorded on your transcript, you will need to contact the continuing education unit of the ASHA Member Center.
Hearing First does not restrict learner registration or repeated completion of learning experiences. However, Hearing First cannot guarantee the provision of duplicate CEU credits. Learners will receive a certificate for any completed course. Any specific questions should be addressed to your state board licensing or referencing the continuing education guidelines for your intended provider: ASHA, AG Bell or AAA.
We encourage everyone to participate in all our Learning Experiences.
There is no charge for Hearing First Learning Experiences.
We take the provision of continuing education responsibly. You earn CE credits by completing all pre-learning assignments and fully participating in all live sessions and completing a self-assessment. Hearing First offers no partial credit. Based on our agreements with the CE professional organizations, we cannot make exceptions.
CE requirements are different for each Learning Experience. Look for general CE requirements on the overview page of each course before registering. Once registered, you can find these requirements on the course homepage, and specific requirement details on the session and lesson pages.
You can expect to:
All CE assignments should be completed by the end of the final live session to receive credit.
If you were unable to complete all CE requirements, you still have access to all content and recordings. We hope you’ll continue using the content for your practice! Though you won’t receive CE credits or a Certificate of Completion, you’ll receive a feedback survey. This survey is optional but will help us make improvements based on your valuable feedback.
We process CE requirements the day after the last live session. If you’ve completed all CE requirements, you’ll receive an email with a link.
Check your spam or junk mail folders. You can also access the survey from the top of the course homepage. Be sure to complete the survey within two weeks after the last live session.
We’ll email you a link to your Certificate of Completion within a few hours of completing the feedback survey. You can also find a link to the certificate at the top of the course homepage.
Under “My Completed Learning Experiences,” you’ll find the link to any Certificates of Completion there.
After registering for a LSL Intervention Observation experience, you’ll find instructions on the Learning Experience homepage. Complete pre-learning for Session 1. When pre-learning opens for Session 2, download your blank C-3 form, review the video and supporting content. Upload your completed C-3 form prior to the live session (these forms are time-stamped). Then, participate in the full live session and complete the feedback survey. We’ll email your signed C-3 form when you complete these steps.
