CDR Accredited

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 the Florida Council of Dietetics and Nutrition.

Certified Diabetes Educators

Becky Dorner & Associates, Inc. is an accredited provider of continuing professional education by the Commission on Dietetic Registration (CDR), which is on the National Certification Board for Diabetes Educators’ (NCBDE) list of Recognized Providers. To use CPE courses for your CDE credits, courses must be on a diabetes-related topic. Courses that include NCBDE under “Professional Approvals” are appropriate for NCBDE. For courses that are not clearly related to diabetes, NCBDE may request a written statement explaining how the course relates to diabetes. You will receive one certificate for use for both CDR and NCBDE (you may print an extra copy of the certificate and write your CDE member number on it for your NCBDE 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 note that ANFP revised the maximum CEs permitted for self-study courses in a renewal period.

Some courses on our site have been previously approved for a greater number of CEs than is now permitted under these new guidelines. Please review CBDM’s new guidelines and complete courses that meet ANFP criteria to fullfill 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.”

Registered Nurses

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.
