January 9, 2013 -— The Continuing Education Board (CEB) of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) recognized Infinity Rehab on January 9, 2013 by re-approving them for an additional five years as an ASHA Approved Continuing Education (CE) Provider. ASHA Approved CE Providers are approved to offer ASHA Continuing Education Units (CEUs) for the courses they offer to audiologists and speech-language pathologists. The recognition period extends for five years and includes all courses offered during that time that meet the ASHA CEB standards.
“We are pleased to welcome Infinity Rehab as our newest ASHA Approved CE Provider organization,” stated Dr. Patricia Prelock, president of ASHA and dean of the College of Nursing and Health Sciences, University of Vermont. Prelock added “Infinity Rehab is part of the 525 organizations in the United States and internationally that have had their organizational process and courses reviewed by our experts in continuing education to ensure the highest possible standards are met.”
In order to achieve ASHA Approved CE Provider status, Infinity Rehab completed a rigorous application process and successfully demonstrated adherence to the ASHA Continuing Education Board standards that focus on the design, development, administration, and evaluation of its continuing education courses offered for audiologists and speech-language pathologists. The re-approval process involved the review of all courses offered by Infinity Rehab in the past five year period and their on-going adherence to ASHA CEB standards. As a result of re-approval, Infinity Rehab agreed to continue their compliance with ASHA CEB standards and can continue to promote their organization and courses using the ASHA CE logo on promotional course material. In addition, Infinity Rehab is listed on the ASHA CEB’s Approved CE Provider list and their courses that meet CEB standards appear in the ASHA CE Course Search on the ASHA website.
