How to Earn Continuing Education for Your ASA Credential

There’s a lot to keep up with in the staffing industry. Laws, rules, and regulations are ever changing, at the federal level and in every state. Then there are the changes in the marketplace, the economy, shifting employment trends, evolving human resource strategies, and more.

CE Requirements for Certification Renewal

To maintain your ASA professional credentials, certified individuals are required to

  • Participate in 30 hours of approved CE every three years.
  • Submit required renewal fee
CE Breakdown for CSP/TSC/CSC-Certified Individuals—30.00 Total:

  • 6.0 Legal CE minimum
  • 24.0 any combination of Passive*, Active, Legal CE
CE Breakdown for CHP-Certified Individuals—30.00 Total:

  • 6.0 Legal CE minimum
  • 6.0 Healthcare CE minimum
  • 18.0 any combination of Passive*, Active, Legal, and Healthcare CE
*A maximum of 12.00 CE hours may be earned by completing approved “passive” learning programs. Passive learning involves programs in which students have no real-time interaction with the instructor or other students (example: a recording of a once-live webinar).

The remaining CE hours may be earned through a combination of active CE or legal CE.

Registered attendees who are ASA-certified and view the entire webinar will automatically see the earned CE hour added to their online CE status within three business days. You no longer need to submit earned hours from attending live ASA webinars on the CE submission form.

You must still submit your earned CE hours from any ASA On-Demand recordings and previous live webinars attended.

Maintain your Certified Staffing Professional®, Technical Services Certified℠, Certified Search Consultant® credentials and Certified Health Care Staffing Professional® by participating in professional education events.

Fortunately, ASA goes to great efforts to keep members and all certified individuals informed and up-to-date. Here’s how you can further your knowledge and earn CE hours:

  • Attend Staffing World®, the premier staffing industry conference; dozens of conference sessions qualify for active and legal CE hours.
  • Attend the ASA Staffing Law Conference, the industry’s most important conference on staffing law; attendance fills the employment law continuing education requirement for renewing an ASA certification.
  • Our ongoing staffing webinar series covers the latest trends as well as fundamental staffing concepts. ASA webinars qualify for active and legal CE hours.
  • ASA’s resource library includes hundreds of on-demand recordings, including all of our past webinars and recorded sessions from Staffing World and the Staffing Law Conference. These qualify for passive or legal CE hours.
  • ASA regional, state network, and affiliated chapter events are an excellent way to stay on top of industry issues and to network, and many qualify for CE credit.
  • Industry training provided by your staffing firm (excluding programs on company-specific operations) may qualify for CE credit.
  • Programs presented by industry suppliers and ASA-approved CE providers may qualify for CE credit.

If you’re ASA-certified, continuing education is required in order to maintain and renew your credential.

If you’re not certified, you can still access ASA’s extensive staffing education resources and advance your professional development.
