CE Broker precisely spells out each licensee’s requirements and tracks your progress as you complete continuing education hours.

Important Information About CE-Registries

American Academy of Audiology (Academy)
“The Academy will only submit Academy courses to CE Broker upon request of the member. You need to be a current Academy member and to email us your Ohio license number. For Academy approved courses offered by a third party (CE Providers) there is a $5/course fee”

American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA)
The American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) is working in partnership with CE Broker to transfer course credits (ASHA CEUs) to CE Broker on behalf of Ohio licensees who use the ASHA CE Registry. ASHA transmits ASHA CEUs to CE Broker every day.
Ohio licensees who would like ASHA to transmit his or her ASHA CEUs to CE Broker should:

  1. Take courses offered for ASHA CEUs.
  2. Complete the ASHA CEU Participant form at the end of the course.
  3. Pay the ASHA CE Registry fee annually.
  4. Verify that ASHA has your Ohio license by going to the License and Credential Information page and login using your asha username and password,
    • Click on the “License Area” hyperlink,
    • Confirm license number or add your license number, and
    • Click on Save.

Hearing Aid Fitters

Individual licensees must complete ten hours of approved Continuing Education (CE), including one hour in “ethics or Ohio state law” (see A.C. 4747-1-11(C)1), in order to renew their license each year. The hours must be obtained during the year prior to license renewal.

For example: If your license expires January 30, 2017, then to renew for 2017-2018, your CE hours must be earned between January 1, 2016 and January 30, 2017 inclusive. The Board strictly adheres to this requirement — CE earned outside this timeline WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED. One clock hour equals one CE hour, and each CE hour may be applied to one renewal year only.

The Board does not keep a record of individual licensees’ ongoing CE hours. Licensees are responsible for confirming CE approval and maintaining verification of attendance. To find approved CE hours, see our Continuing Education FAQ.

Continuing Education Audit

The Board conducts an audit of at least 20% of renewed licensees each February to confirm CE compliance. Additionally, all individuals who postmark their license renewal applications after February 1 are automatically audited, since CE documentation must accompany these renewal applications. More details about the CE audit can be found in the Continuing Education FAQ.

Pursuant to A.C. 4747-1-11(E)(4), failure to meet CE requirements, or to comply with the audit, may result in suspension, revocation, denial of license or renewal of license according to provisions of Chapter 119. of the Revised Code.
