Ethics CPEU Requirement Resources

What is the ethics requirement?

As a part of their recertification RDs and DTRs are required to complete at least 1 hour of continuing education related to the topic of ethics during each 5-year cycle.

There is no one single activity that you must complete to satisfy this requirement, as long as a continuing education program's content is primarily about a matter of professional ethics and how it relates to your practice. This can be either a live or self-study activity though one should be mindful that all self-study activities must be either: CDR Prior Approved, offered by a CDR Accredited Program Provider, or have approval from a similar credentialing body, such as the ACCME or the ANCC (click here for a full list).

Accordingly, you will be unable to submit your Activity Log without including at least 1 CPEU of Ethics.

Some helpful links:

You can find ethics-related activities by searching the CPE Online Database, which compiles all activities that have been prior approved, or offered by CDR Accredited Providers.

As well, below you will find a partial listing of programs offered by CDR Accredited Program Providers and links to them on their respective websites.
