How to Maintain Your CDM, CFPP Credential
45 hours of approved Continuing Education (CE) every three (3) years. CE hours must be met while actively certified, and within your current three-year qualifying period.
- All required CE credits must be obtained no later than May 31 of your 3 year qualifying period.
- General CE hours are all CE hours that are not counted in the sanitation hours.
- A minimum of 9 hours of approved sanitation CE.
- After June 1, 2019, CDM’s will need to report 1 CE hour focusing on professional ethics during their three-year recertification period. The total number of required CE hours will remain at 45. 3 year recertification CE cycles ending May 31, 2019 will NOT be required to report 1 CE hour in professional ethics.
Every CDM, CFPP will enter their own hours online in your member account.
- Log into your online profile at www.CBDMonline.org and select "My Certification" in the menu options on the left. You will see the CE activity that has been reported. The decision to accept or reject CE hours is made by the Certifying Board for Dietary Managers, NOT UND.
- Every CDM, CFPP is subject to random audit selection. If insufficient CE hours are
reported, an audit may also be required. It is VERY important that every CDM, CFPP
keeps an accurate record of their CE hours in the event of an audit
