RDs or RDNs who have finished CDR’s Certificate of Training in Obesity for Pediatrics and Adults may be wondering about their next step.
The first question to ask is:
“Do I have a minimum of 2,000 hours of work experience in obesity and weight management within the past five years?”
Apply for the board certification in obesity and weight management (CSOWM) credential!
