|The Commission on Dietetic Registration (CDR) has switched to a paperless system for prior approval of Continuing Professional Education (CPE) activities. All activities and their supporting materials are now submitted directly to the CDR Database by the organization’s contact, and then reviewed by the Kansas Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics affiliate reviewer online except for Self-Study Programs, Annual Meetings and Multi-State Programs which will always be reviewed by CDR staff. Activity verifications are generated by the CDR CPE Database.
CDR has revised the current continuing professional education approval criteria to require that all continuing professional education activity types addressing diet and nutrition topics, include an RD or DTR in program planning. This policy change is effective for continuing professional activities offered on or after June 1, 2018 and for CDR credentialed practitioners recertifying beginning a new recertification cycle on or after June 2, 2018. For exceptions, visit the Prior Approval CPE Guidelines link below.
Prior approval must be submitted 3 weeks prior to the program.
