You can obtain CEUs by finishing various “professional development” programs, which are hours of instruction. You could also call them continuing education hours or maintenance hours for certificates.
Students obtain CEUs by successfully completing courses that teach them about subjects related to speech-language pathology. These could be conferences, webinars, podcasts, or videos. Some of these courses are only an hour long and focus on a single topic, while others are longer and cover more ground. Elaborated below are the SLP Continuing Education Requirements in Texas.
Approved Providers for CEUs
Courses relevant to the scope of practice are available from the following providers:
● American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA)
● Texas Speech-Language-Hearing Association (TSHA)

Continuing Education Audit System
Each month, the Department selects a random sample of license renewals for auditing. If the licensee is chosen for an audit, the auditor will notify them when their renewal notice arrives. Following that, the licensee will be required to submit copies of certificates, transcripts, or other documentation to verify attendance, participation, and completion of continuing education requirements. Licenses will not be renewed unless and until continuing education requirements are met.
You must apply earned continuing education hours in excess of the minimum requirement in a previous renewal period first to the current renewal period’s continuing education requirement.
● During a license period, a maximum of 10 additional clock hours may be accumulated and applied to the next consecutive renewal period. Two of the rollover hours’ ten additional clock hours may be in ethics.
● Dual speech-language pathology and audiology licensees may accrue up to 15 additional clock hours during a license period to be applied to the next consecutive renewal period.
