Frequently Asked Questions About E-courses
How do I find and register for an E-course?
To browse our E-courses or to register for an E-course, click on 'Online CEUs' tab found along the menu bar near the top of the screen. Moving your mouse onto the 'Online CEUs' tab will cause a window to drop down. Inside that window, there is a list of options including searching for an E-course. There is also an option you can choose which will list instructions for registering for an E-course.
Will my state licensing board accept CEUs earned online from E-courses?
Most state licensing boards DO accept CEUs earned online (usually classified as home-study credits). Some state boards do, however, place a limit to the number of credits that can be earned via home study/online workshops. If you are taking an E-course for credit, we suggest that you call your licensing board to verify acceptance policies and home-study credit limits before registering.
Do I have to complete the entire course in one sitting? Or can I complete the course over a period of days?
Our E-courses allow you to work at your own pace. You can spend as much or as little time as you desire on each section. You're free to choose to complete your course all at once, or you can complete the course over a period of days.
Will I receive credit for taking an E-course?
NSS-NRS is an approved provider of CE by ASHA, AOTA, and numerous state and national boards and associations. Most state licensing boards do accept credits earned online. They are usually classified under home-study. Some state boards do, however, place a limit to the number of credits that can be earned via home study/online workshops. It is always a good idea to check in advance with your licensing board and/or association to verify acceptance policies and credit limits.
How many credits or contact hours are E-courses worth?
We offer courses for 1 contact hour as well as multiple contact hours. Click on 'Online CEUs' and then click on the E-course of your choice.
Is there a test at the end of the E-course?
Yes. You will need to complete a multiple question test at the end of the course. A score of 80% is needed to pass and earn credit. However, if you score lower than 80% on your first attempt you are allowed to return to the course, review the material and modify your answers until a score of 80% is obtained.
How will I document that I completed an E-course?
Upon successful completion of the E-course you will be able to print a certificate of completion (just like the one you'd receive at our seminars) showing the course title, sponsor, date, number of contact hours, and ASHA (and AOTA, when applicable) approved provider statements.
What about ASHA credit?
To receive ASHA credit, simply select "yes" to receiving ASHA credit and then fill in your ASHA account number when you register for the course. If you already have an account with us and have filled in your ASHA account number, you will automatically receive ASHA credit for completed E-courses when we submit the CEU information to ASHA quarterly. Therefore, if you register for an E-course on February 2nd but do not complete it until April 15th, it will be sent in to ASHA with the second quarter filing.
However, ASHA does record the day of completion in accordance with the day it was actually completed versus the day it is submitted by NSS-NRS.
How long will I have access to an E-course?
You can access an E-course unlimited times up until you print your certificate of completion. After your certificate is printed you will no longer have access to the E-course.
