I submitted my Continuing Professional Education Reporting Form 5 days ago, usually I get my Certificate of Completion within 2-3 days, but I haven't gotten it yet. How can I check on when to expect it & what's the best way to submit my reporting form?
Our hard copy CPE programs consist of a book & study guide or a manual. Each study guide or manual has Self Assessment Questions (a test), an Answer Key, Explanations to the Questions, and a Continuing Professional Education Reporting Form that you will use to submit to us so that we can email (or mail) you your Certificate of Completion. Each program comes with everything needed for one person to complete the program.
If you already have the book that comes with a CPE program, you will need to purchase a study guide which will include a Continuing Professional Education Reporting Form so that you can get CPEUs. Please note that a Continuing Professional Education Reporting Form is not the test to complete the program. You will need to call our office to place your order for the study guide.
Our electronic programs consist of a manual which has the Self Assessment Questions (a test), Answer Key, Explanations to the Questions, and instructions to submit your Continued Professional Education Reporting Form online so that we can email you your Certificate of Completion.

Q: I wanted to do one of your CPE programs but the Performance Indicators you have listed for that program do not match the ones I have in my learning plan. Can I use them anyway?
You can use the same program for both CDR & CBDCE as long as it is a program that is from our list of programs accepted by CBDCE, because ALL of our programs are approved by CDR.
IMPORTANT: You will receive 1 certificate only!!! The certificate you will receive will state that the program is approved by CDR & will have your CDR membership/association number on it only.
We have many ELECTRONIC (ePrograms) available. Click
here to go to the list of ePrograms.
Once you complete your order online, download your eProgram(s) from the Order Confirmation or from the receipt that you will receive by email. Click on the title of the eProgram and save it to your computer. Pay attention to where this file is being saved so that you can find it. Many computers have a "Downloads" folder so check there if you can't find your eProgram.You have 30 days to download this program and save it to your computer. This is a pdf file. You will need to have Acrobat Reader installed on your computer to open and save this file. If you don't have Adobe Acrobat Reader click on https://www.adobe.com/products/reader.html to download it to your computer.
The Self Assessment Questions in the eProgram are not interactive. Jot down your answers on a piece of paper and check them against the Aswer Key. Once you complete your eProgram go to our website and click on "Submit Reporting Form" to submit your Continuing Professional Education Reporting Form. You must do this before your eProgram expires (one year from the date of your purchase). In the "Course Registration Number" field enter the Order Number from the confirmation you received via email when you placed your order. Fill out the rest of the information on the Continuing Professional Education Reporting Form and click the submit button at the bottom of the form...it's that simple. You will get an immediate confirmation that we received your form and your certificate will be emailed to you within 2-5 days to the email address you provided on the reporting form.
You can download the FREE Ethics eProgram as often as you like. Please follow instructions in the program to submit your reporting form in order to get a Certificate of Completion. This program is electronic and is not available as a Hard Copy. It is not for sale. To get it free you must be a customer who has made a purchase within the past 2 years.
The Kindle Fire does NOT support pdf files. But you can get a FREE adobe reader app https://acrobat.adobe.com/us/en/products/mobile-app.html. Then, using your PC, you can upload the eProgram to your acrobat account, and then you will be able to view it on your Kindle Fire.
If your IPad doesn't let you download the eProgram from your receipt, please open and save the emailed receipt to a computer (NOT a mobile device) on which you have Acrobat Reader installed. From that computer go to the receipt, click on the title of the eProgram and download & save it as a pdf file to your computer. (Be sure to remember where you saved it.) Next send yourself an email and attach the pdf/eProgram you downloaded & saved. Now you will be able to read this attachment on your IPad.
It's fast and easy to get your Continuing Professional Education Units with our method:
I submitted my CPE Reporting Form 5 days ago, usually I get my Certificate of Completion within 2-3 days, but I haven't gotten it yet?
If you faxed your Reporting Form to us and it's been more than five days that you haven't received your certificate, please re-fax it or submit your reporting form on our website. When faxing be sure to use blue or black ink and PRINT VERY CLEARLY. Pencil or red ink typically does NOT transmit over fax, and if we can't read your email address we can't email you a Certificate.
If you mailed the Reporting Form, allow 5-7 business days to receive your Certificate. If it's been more than 7 days, resubmit your Reporting Form online or send us an email with the information so we can follow up. Keep in mind that there is no need to use the mail for submitting your CPE Reporting Form! Online is much faster!
Also if you'd like us to mail you your certificate instead of emailing it then write "Please Mail" in the "email" line on the Reporting Form.
As of June 1, 2019 the Certifying Board for Dietary Managers (CBDM) instituted new CE rules which allow CDM’s to use only 6 CEs from books for a 3 year certification period. Because of this new rule we have decided to terminate our relationship with the CBDM, which unfortunately means that CDMs will no longer be able to use our CE programs for their certification. We are extremely sorry to lose you as our customer but stand ready to support you again if you and your colleagues can get the CBDM to reverse this rule change.
We will keep your records in our computer for 7 years. You can email or call us to check on your credits or to find out which programs you have done in the past.
