Becky Dorner & Associates, Inc. has been a trusted Continuing Professional Education (CPE) Provider (NU004) with the Commission on Dietetic Registration (CDR) since 2002. Our CPE programs meet the requirements for the CDR’s Professional Development Portfolio. Because our courses are approved by CDR, they are also accepted by other organizations that accept CDR accredited programs including but not limited to the Certification Board for Diabetes Care and Education and the Florida Council of Dietetics and Nutrition. We recommend that you double check with the organization if you have any concerns.
Certified Diabetes Care and Education Specialists
Becky Dorner & Associates, Inc. is an accredited provider of continuing professional education by the Commission on Dietetic Registration (CDR), which is on the Certification Board for Diabetes Care and Education (CBDCE) list of Recognized Continuing Education Providers. To use CPE courses for your CDCES credits, courses must be on a diabetes-related topic included on the exam. Courses that include CBDCE under “Professional Approvals” may be appropriate for CBDCE credit, however, we encourage you to review the CBDCE criteria to be certain. For courses that are not clearly related to diabetes, CBDCE may request a written statement explaining how the course relates to diabetes. You will receive one certificate for use for both CDR and CBDCE (you may print an extra copy of the certificate and write your CDCES member number on it for your CBDCE records).
Certified Dietary Managers
Certified Dietary Managers (CDMs) may complete a course and self-report it in their Certifying Board for Dietary Managers (CBDM) record. It is the individual’s responsibility to keep all documentation including proof of attendance, course description/syllabus, and certificates of completion in case of an audit to prove that every CE program submitted is valid, appropriate or worthy of CE for a CDM.
Please review CBDM’s guidelines and complete courses that meet ANFP criteria to fulfill your CE hours.
From CBDM: “All CBDM Prior Approved programs are subjected to the CE hour limitations for a program type as defined by CBDM policy. For more information, please refer to The CBDM Guide to Maintaining your Credential.”
RNs may also be able to obtain credit if the course is relevant to nursing practice. Check with your state licensing board to assure that you may use courses from Commission on Dietetic Registration (CDR) Accredited Providers towards your state license continuing education hours. They may require a written statement explaining how the course relates to nursing practice.
For Other Professionals
Please check with your certification or licensure board to see if they accept courses/programs from Commission on Dietetic Registration (CDR) Accredited Providers.
