Responding to a recommendation from the Academy Board of Directors, on May 9, 2011, the Commission on Dietetic Registration voted to require that RDs and DTRs complete a minimum of 1 CPEU of Continuing Professional Education in Ethics (Learning Need Code 1050) during each 5-year recertification cycle in order to recertify. This requirement will be effective starting with the 5-year recertification cycle which ends on May 31, 2017, and will be phased in over a 5 year period for each recertification cycle.
- Each Step 3: Learning Plan submitted for recertification cycles ending May 31, 2017 and afterwards, will be required to include a Learning Need Code 1050 – Ethics.
- Each Step 4: Activity Log submitted for recertification cycles ending May 31, 2017 and afterwards, must include at least 1 Continuing Professional Education Unit (CPEU) with a Learning Need Code 1050 – Ethics
There is no one specific activity which CDR credentialed practitioners must complete to satisfy this requirement. To locate program examples, simply click the link below to visit the CPE Online Database and search for the topic of "Ethics."
