Changes in ASHA’s Audiology/Professional Certification Standards

What You Must Know

Beginning January 1, 2007, the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) changed its certification standards for Audiologists. These changes are effective for any student who applied for ASHA’s Certificate of Clinical Competence (CCC) after December 31, 2006.

Provisions of the ASHA CCC-A require possession of an earned doctorate in Audiology or closely related area. Other changes mandate a full calendar year of the Clinical Fellowship in conjunction with the doctoral program.

Note that the academic program in Audiology no longer has its accreditation from the Council on Academic Accreditation of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association. ASHA may or may not elect to accept an application for certification by holders with the Master’s degree as the highest degree earned. Also, ASHA may or may not elect to accept an application even after consultation with the Department.

The new ASHA CCC standards for Audiology include mandated submission of the extensive Knowledge and Skills Analysis form.

For more information, visit the ASHA and state licensure board websites and download all relevant forms and documents.
