Pre-approval of Continuing Education Courses

Are you a sponsor looking for pre-approval of CE courses?

There is no authority or process for pre-approval of continuing education course work. Sponsors of CE, speech-language pathologists and audiologists are responsible for following the requirements of MN Statute 148.5193 Subdivision 2., copied below:

Continuing education provided by sponsors. The commissioner will accept continuing education provided by sponsors if the continuing education activity meets the following standards:

  1. constitutes an organized program of learning;

  2. reasonably expects to advance the knowledge and skills of the speech-language pathologist or audiologist;

  3. pertains to subjects that relate to the practice of speech-language pathology or audiology;

  4. is conducted by individuals who have education, training, and experience by reason of which said individuals should be considered experts concerning the subject matter of the activity; and

  5. is presented by a sponsor who has a mechanism to verify participation and maintains attendance records for four years.
