Digital Credentialing

CDR has partnered with Credly to provide you with a digital version of your credential that you can use to showcase what you have accomplished! Credly is an organization which works with credible organizations to provide digital credentials to individuals, worldwide.

All RDs and DTRs who paid their registration maintenance fee received an email invitation from Credly providing them with access to their digital credential badge. This digital credential contains information describing your credential, including the rigor involved in earning it. You can easily display your digital credential badge on your email signature and social media sites. We hope you take advantage of this new benefit and enjoy the professional recognition afforded by our credentialing program!
