CHECK OUT OUR AWESOME COURSES

Wait a sec, I have a few questions...

I'm an SLP, do I get ASHA CEU's?

We offer CMH instead of CEU's, and here's the scoop on that...

CMH or  "certification maintenance hours" are just a good at maintaining your ASHA C's and state licensure requirements (check your state for details) as CEU's, they just aren't sent to ASHA to show up on your CE Registry.   We have chosen to offer CMH and help you track your CMH (in the event you are audited by ASHA) to bypass the high overhead costs involved in offering ASHA CEU's so that we can keep your tuition low   Visit our CEU/CMH page to get full details on this part of your learning experience.  

I'm a busy person, do I have to watch my class live?

No way!  We offer flexible learning for all of our courses so you can have a life outside of learning.   Read on for details...

All of our courses with live lecture are recorded so that you can re-watch or watch for the first time on a schedule that works for your busy life.  You get the same great quality as a live course and the flexibility to pause and rewind, while also maintaining interactivity with our instructor and classmates though our online learning communities.  

Where does my money go?

We strive to be a good steward of resources.  Read on to see how your AAC Academy tuition supports the AAC community at large.
