New Jersey Speech-Language Pathologist License Renewal Process

Like most licensed professionals, speech-language pathologists (SLPs) must complete continuing education hours to renew their licenses (download continuing education tracker form). This is unsurprising, because speech pathologists must always keep on track of the latest trends. For instance, sometimes there are new techniques or therapeutics available. Insurance changes and other regulatory shifts are also important information for any medical professional.

In New Jersey, you have to renew your license every two years. To do this, you need 20 credit hours. You can fulfill these credit hours many different ways, such as attending seminars and taking classes. A valuable resource is the New Jersey Speech-Language-Hearing Association. They provide continuing education courses and advice for their members.

Speech-Language pathologists need to keep their continuing education records for several years. That’s because the Board audits licensees to confirm compliance with CE license renewal rules.
