Course content is required by our national accrediting agency and the students are responsible for this information on a certification exam. - Credit Hours Variable: Y - Credit Hours: 2-1 - New description: Topics include: legal and ethical issues affecting practice, licensure, ASHA certification, the ASHA Code of Ethics, laws and regulations in health care and educational settings, and quality assurance standards.
