2022 Conference Continuing Education


ASHA Continuing Education:

This is a blended course consisting of several live sessions (this includes the Workshops and the live poster session) that are a total of 0.8 ASHA CEUs. There are also on-demand sessions (including the live sessions that are recorded for on-demand viewing). The on-demand sessions only are a total of 2.1 ASHA CEUs.

The maximum number of CEUs you can attain, with a mix of both live and on-demand sessions, is 2.2 CEUs. If you participate in all of the live sessions and watch all 28 pre-recorded sessions, on-demand, you can earn a total of 2.2 CEUs. If you miss the live sessions and only watch the on-demand sessions (that include the recorded live sessions and the prerecorded sessions, but NOT the poster session) then the most CEUs you can earn is 2.1 CEUs. If you only participate in the live sessions, the most CEUs you can earn is .8 CEUs.

Poster Session: YOU MUST attend the one-hour LIVE poster session to receive .1 ASHA CEUs for the poster session. This session will NOT be recorded. You must watch at least 4 poster sessions and complete the evaluations to get the .1 CEUs for the poster session.

[IMPORTANT, PLEASE NOTE: Pre-recorded sessions include the live programs that are recorded and offered to those who missed the live session. You cannot get credit for attending both the live and recorded sessions on the same topic.

AAA Continuing Education:

Live conference (this includes the Workshops and the live poster session) will be offered for 0.8 AAA CEUs (Intermediate level; Professional area.)

On-demand recorded sessions (including the live sessions that are recorded for on-demand viewing) are offered for 2.1 AAA CEUs (Intermediate level; Professional area.)

Poster Session: YOU MUST attend the one-hour LIVE poster session to receive .1 AAA CEUs for the poster session. This session will NOT be recorded. You must watch at least 4 poster sessions and complete the evaluations to get the .1 CEUs for the poster session.

Obtaining CE Credit for Nurses:

Certificates of continuing education are available to registrants at no additional fee. In order to receive a certificate of continuing education, you must be registered for the conference and an Online Evaluation must be completed for each session or institute attended. Participants must complete evaluation of each activity in order to receive documentation of participation. Please note that NHCA is not accredited by individual states or the Department of Education to offer CE credits. Meeting registrants are responsible for verifying whether CE credits offered by APHA can be used toward maintenance of their license or certification.

How to obtain your CEUs for AAA and ASHA

The conference is a combination of both live virtual presentations and pre-recorded presentations that you can access during the live conference days up until March 11, 2022.

For LIVE sessions (offered on Friday, 2/11 and Saturday, 2/12): For AAA and/or ASHA, you can watch these sessions live or as a recording in the LMS up until March 11, 2022. You don’t have to watch the sessions live in order to get the CEU credit but they are offered live, if you prefer.

After March 11, 2022 you will no longer have access to the recorded sessions and you will not be able to submit for CE credit for these sessions as part of your conference attendance.

AAA CEU INFORMATION: All live and pre-recorded sessions were submitted as part of the overall conference package. If you attend all of the live sessions (or watch the recordings, except the poster session which will NOT be recorded) and watch all of the pre-recorded sessions (28), the total maximum CEUs you can earn is 2.2.

ASHA CEU INFORMATION: As required by ASHA, all live sessions were submitted as part of a conference package for .8 ASHA CEUs, and then the pre-recorded sessions and recordings of the live sessions were submitted as a separate package for a total of 2.1 ASHA CEUs. If you attend all of the live sessions (or watch the recordings) and you watch all of the recorded sessions, the total CEUs you can earn is 2.2. If you only watch the recordings the total CEUs you can earn is 2.1 because the poster session is only offered LIVE. YOU MUST attend the one-hour LIVE poster session, and attend at least 4 of the poster presentations, to receive .1 CEUs for the poster session.

ASHA has changed the way we are able to submit our conference attendance rosters so we are not required to obtain an ASHA participant from you for this conference.

INSTRUCTIONS

CODES FOR LIVE SESSIONS: For each of the live sessions, you will receive a code that you must input into the evaluation form for that session (in the NHCA Learning Management System/LMS), in order to confirm your attendance at that particular session. Once you complete the evaluation you will receive an email with your CEU certificate.

POSTER SESSIONS – ONLY OFFERED LIVE. There is a live session on February 12, 1:45pm – 2:45pm Central Time. There are 10 poster presentations that will be in breakout rooms during the Zoom session. In order to receive .1 CEUs for the poster session you will need to visit 4 of the 6 poster presentations and get a code from each of them to input into the individual poster session evaluations. You will complete an evaluation for each of the 4 poster presentations you attended in order to receive a CE certificate for .1 CEUs. If you have less than 4 you will not receive ANY credit. If you attend and submit evaluations for 4 presentations you will earn .1 CEUs. If you attend and submit evaluations for more than 4 poster presentations you will still ONLY receive credit for .1 CEUs.

PRE-RECORDED SESSIONS: For each of the pre-recorded sessions, you will login to the NHCA Learning Management System (LMS) and watch the session. Once you’ve watched the video it will open up the evaluation that you can complete in order to receive an email with your CE certificate.

Logging into the Learning Management Center to View Recordings and Complete Session Evaluations (for CEU credit)

To visit the LMS, complete your evaluations and earn your CEUs/receive your CE certificate:

  1. Login to nhc.mclms.net
  2. Click on the login button in the upper right hand corner. After you login you will be returned to the same page on the LMS. (Note: You need to login because only registered conference attendees have access to the conference information on the LMS.) You will login using your username and password, typically your email for your username and a password you setup when you joined NHCA or registered as a non-member for the conference. If you are having trouble logging in, simply click on “Retrieve Username” or “Reset Password.” If you are still having trouble, contact NHCA at nhcaoffice@hearingconservation.org.
  3. There will be 4 conference packages listed in the LMS: The Welcome Package(Where you will fill out a form for ASHA and one for AAA if you are claiming CE’s); LIVE Virtual Conference Day 1 (Thursday); LIVE Virtual Conference Day 2 (Friday); LIVE Virtual Conference Day 3(Saturday) and On-Demand Sessions(All pre-recorded content). Within each day you will see the sessions available. For example, within Virtual Conference Day 1 there will be all of the live sessions you can access during this day of the live conference. The ones that provide CEUs will be noted and you will need to complete an evaluation for each of those sessions in order to receive CEU credit.
  4. This year we are handling CE’s a little differently than last year. When you receive access to the Learning Center you must fill out the AAA or ASHA CE credit form under the welcome package. You must indicate what you are seeking credit for AND you must also provide your member number for these entities. If you do not indicate that you want credit and you do not provide your AAA and/or ASHA member id, you are not guaranteed to receive CEU credit.
  5. In addition to the email you receive with your CE certificate (auto-sent after you complete your evaluation), your CEUs will also be added to and tracked in your NHCA profile. You can login to your NHCA profile anytime to retrieve a transcript showing the CEUs you’ve earned through the NHCA LMS. [Note: If you want to use the NHCA database to track all of your CEUs, you can manually add CEUs that you’ve earned from other events/entities.

Conference Survey

You will receive an email with a link to a conference survey asking you to evaluate the virtual conference, overall, and asking you to submit ideas for future content. As part of both the AAA and ASHA CEU process, we are required to conduct a needs assessment survey for planning and development purposes.
