CPE Provider Accreditation Program Information

New Requirement
CDR has revised the current continuing professional education approval criteria to require that all continuing professional education activity types (excluding academic coursework) addressing diet and nutrition topics, include an RD or DTR in program planning.  This policy change is effective for continuing professional activities offered on or after June 1, 2018 and for CDR credentialed practitioners recertifying beginning a new recertification cycle on or after June 2, 2018.

The Commission on Dietetic Registration Competency Assurance Panel is evaluating the Accredited Provider Program Standards.  To facilitate implementation of the new standards, the Accredited Provider term for applications received on or after January 1, 2016 will be reduced from 3 years to 1 year.  Accredited Providers approved in 2016 will be required to reapply under the new standards in 2017.  Program Providers accredited in 2016 will be allowed to pay the current $300 maintenance fee.

Please contact CDR at cdr@eatright.org or 312/899-0040, ext. 5500 if you have questions.
