ABSTRACT

Individuals applying for their initial American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) Certificate of Clinical Competence in Audiology (CCC-A) must now adhere to the 2007 Certification Standards in Audiology (ASHA, 2008). The standards, which took effect on January 1, 2007, require a doctoral degree for persons who apply for certification after December 31, 2011. This article compares the 1993 and 2007 Standards for Certification in Audiology and discusses the major differences, such as length of the practicum experience, assignment of patients/clients, the number and type of clock hours, and supervision requirements.
