Continuing Professional Education Questions
Do I have to complete the test prior to the program’s expiration date?
Yes. The Commission on Dietetic Registration only allows 3 years for a program to be approved. Once it expires, the program is no longer accredited (credit hours are no longer given).
Do I have to submit the hours to the Commission on Dietetic Registration (CDR) before the expiration date of the course, or do I just need to pass the test and get my certificate before the course’s expiration date – and submit the course to the CDR portfolio at a later date?
According to the CDR, you would not need to submit the hours to CDR before the expiration date but you would need to complete the course prior to the program’s expiration date.
Who can claim credit hours for your CPE programs?
Our programs are approved for CPE by the Commission on Dietetic Registration (CDR) of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (Academy). For details on which professionals can claim credit hours, please see Professional Approvals.
How do I take the CPE test to earn my certificate?
