Speech-Language Pathology, Audiology, and Hearing Aid Dispensing Practices: Continuing Education Requirements

Continuing Education Credit Requirements: 

The board will require twenty (20) hours of continuing education every two years. These may be distributed over the two year period, or they may all be obtained in one year. These continuing education hours must be in the field of his or her licensure, or in a related field if justified to the board office. The board office will consult with the board and/or with the New Mexico speech-language and hearing association (or similar statewide professional association) to resolve questions as to appropriate continuing education hours. Renewal of a license shall be contingent upon the fulfillment of the continuing education standards and the supplying of evidence thereof by the licensee. The board shall be the final authority on acceptance of any educational activity submitted by a licensee to meet the continuing education requirement.

The number of continuing education hours required for renewal of a license may be prorated by the board office.  A newly licensed individual or a person who reinstates his or her license and whose next renewal date occurs less than twelve (12) months after the license is issued will be required to earn continuing education hours equivalent to one (1) hour per month each month the license is issued or reinstated to the last day of the renewal month up to a maximum of ten (10) clock hours.
