Document all completed CPEUs on the online Activity Log found within a practitioners myCDR account.
Submit the Activity Log to CDR.
Note: CDR strongly recommends that Learning Plans and Activity Logs be submitted by May 31st of the last year of the 5-year recertification cycle. However, CDR will accept Plans and Logs as late as 11:59 PM Central Time on June 30th of the final year of a recertification cycle. All activities must be completed by May 31st of the final year.
No, CDR does not have a retired status. Practitioners either maintain the credentials through paying the yearly registration fee and completing the PDP recertification requirements or drop the credentials.
Note: If a practitioner drops the credential, the only way to have the credentials reinstated is through successful completion of the entry level examination.
If a practitioner misses the PDP deadline date, there are two options to pursue credential reinstatement:
Option 1: Submit an appeal to be considered by CDR's Appeals Panel
Option 2: Retake and pass the entry level RD or DTR examination.
To move forward with the appeals process, a practitioner must complete the appeals application found within their myCDR account under the “Submit or View Appeal” tab. For additional information on how to submit an appeal, please refer to the following information:
The Panel tends to grant positive outcomes to individuals who have experienced medical, legal, or financial hardships and can provide corroborating third-party supporting documentation. Without any of the hardships mentioned above and/or supporting documentation, the appellant may not receive the positive outcome desired.
The Appeals Panel deliberates and decides on appeal requests once a month. Appeals are prepared and presented confidentially to the Panel (names are redacted).
If the practitioner is interested in retaking the RD or DTR entry level examination, please contact CDRexams@eatright.org.
