CDR's office building is currently experiencing an electrical service interrruption. Electrical service will be restored on Monday, May 29th at 6:00 AM CT.

During this timeframe you will not be able to access your Step 3: Learning Plan, or your Step 4: Activity Log.

Special Notice for practitioners scheduled to recertify May 31, 2017: If you have not yet done so, remember that your Step 3: Learning Plan for the cycle ending 2017 must be submitted to CDR on or before May 31st. Do not delay submitting your Learning Plan. Although all learning activities must be completed on or before May 31, 2017, your Step 4: Activity Log can be submitted by June 30, 2017 at the latest.

Professional Development Portfolio

Credentialed practitioners are required to maintain certification through continuous learning in order to ensure professional knowledge and competence. To that end, the Commission on Dietetic Registration constructed the Professional Development Portfolio (PDP) process, which provides practitioners with the tools to achieve these aims.
Please click on the link below to access your Professional Development Portfolio Guide and other helpful resources such as a PDP Flash Presentation that explains the PDP process; a 120 Day calculation chart that will assist you in determining when you will need to submit your Learning Plan; examples of learning plans and activity logs; and a background of the portfolio project.
