Certifications: Board Certification as a Specialist in Pediatric Critical Care Nutrition
The Commission on Dietetic Registration (CDR) offers Board Certification as a Specialist in Pediatric Critical Care Nutrition. Board certification is granted in recognition of an applicant's documented practice experience and successful completion of an examination in the specialty area.
UPDATE: Based on the results of the most recent job analysis for the CSP and CSPCC certifications, it is necessary to implement/initiate a testing blackout period to allow time for development and programming to align with the new CSPCC examination content outline.
Testing under the current content outline will continue through June 30, 2021.
The blackout period will begin July 1, 2021. The next available examination window is scheduled for October 1-30, 2021. The exam will resume year-round testing beginning February 2022. For further information, click on the examination dates and fee link below.
