One thing to keep in mind – ASHA and your state *may* have different requirements. We’re going to go through the requirements for ASHA in this post.
ASHA requires every SLP to have 30 clinical maintenance hours (CMHs) every three years to maintain their CCC’s (Certificate of Clinical Competence). More info here: https://www.asha.org/certification/maintain-ccc/
2023 UPDATE: ASHA appears to have changed the terminology from CMH (clinical maintenance hours) to PDH (professional development hours).
