Our CEs count toward the CDCES exam and CDCES / BC-ADM renewal*!
Our CEs count toward the 15 CE requirements to sit for the exam! When applying to take the exam with the Certification Board for Diabetes Care & Education (CBDCE) you’ll just need to select “CDR” or “Commission on Dietetic Registration” for your CE hours source.
Our CEs count towards the 75 CEs needed to renew your CDCES or BC-ADM because our courses are accredited through the CDR.
Our CEs count for RDs in all states, and in most states for RNs because of reciprocity agreements. Check with your state Licensing Board to see if there is a reciprocity agreement with California’s BRN. RDs and RNs in California can use our CEs towards their professional hours continuing education requirement.
Pharmacists in California can count our CEs towards their professional hours continuing education requirement because of a reciprocity agreement between the California BRN and the California Board of Pharmacists. Pharmacists and other health care professionals in other states should check with their state Licensing Board to see if there is a reciprocity agreement with California’s BRN or the CDR.
Since we are not directly an approved provider through the NABP, Pharmacists need to self-report their CE hours.
Accreditation: Diabetes Education Services is an approved provider by the California Board of Registered Nursing, Provider 12640, and Commission on Dietetic Registration (CDR), Provider DI002. Since these programs are approved by the CDR it satisfies the CE requirements for the CDCES regardless of your profession.*
The use of DES products does not guarantee the successful passage of the diabetes certification exams. CBDCE & ADCES does not endorse any preparatory or review materials for the certification exams, except for those published by CBDCE & ADCES.
**To satisfy the requirement for renewal of certification by continuing education for the Certification Board for Diabetes Care & Education (CBDCE), continuing education activities must be applicable to diabetes and approved by a provider on the CBDCE List of Recognized Providers (www.ncbde.org). CBDCE does not approve continuing education.
Diabetes Education Services is accredited/approved by the Commission of Dietetic Registration which is on the list of CBDCE Recognized Providers.
