Welcome to the Continuing Education section of our website. Here you’ll find a link to the Montana Board of Speech-Language Pathologists and Audiologists site, as well as information for how to obtain MSHA and/or ASHA approved CEUs.
Montana Board of Speech-Language Pathologists and Audiologists:
State licensure requires 10 hours per year of continuing education, and ASHA certification requires 30 hours during each 3-year certification maintenance interval. MSHA sponsored CEUs follow the same standard set by ASHA. The Montana Board of Speech-language Pathology and Audiology accepts both MSHA and ASHA CEUs.

Currently MSHA CEUs are available to current MSHA members as a member benefit. If you are not a MSHA member, you can join MSHA prior to or at the event to obtain a MSHA certificate. If the event offers only MSHA but not ASHA CEUs, you can submit these to ASHA on your own through the following form if you are audited.
Note: It can take up to 60 days to get your event approved.
