Our CEs count toward the CDCES exam and CDCES licensure renewal*!

Diabetes Education Services is an approved provider by the California Board of Registered Nursing, Provider 12640, and Commission on Dietetic Registration (CDR), Provider DI002.

Taking the CDCES Exam?

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.

Renewing Your CDCES or BC-ADM license?

Our CEs count towards the 75 CEs needed to renew your CDCES or BC-ADM license because our courses are accredited through the CDR.

Are you an RD or RN?

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.

Are you a Pharmacist or Other Health Care Professional?

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.
