As a credentialed professional, CDM, CFPPs have worked hard to earn and maintain their professional certification. CBDM policies and procedures for CE Self Reporting and CE Audit are designed to uphold the integrity of the credential, and help CDMs gain a professional edge with continuing education that meets defined standards.
As a CDM, you are responsible for tracking your own CE hours and submitting them by the end of your three-year recertification cycle. Each year, a selection of CDMs will be audited, either randomly or due to insufficient CE hours. If you happen to be selected for audit, here’s how the process works:
• Every three years, CDMs are required to earn and self-report 45 hours of CE, including 9 hours of Sanitation and Food Safety.
• Effective June 1, 2015, those CDMs whose three-year CE period has ended, are subject to audit policies.
• Each year, some CDMs who have met their CE requirements, are randomly selected for audit. ALL CDMs who have not met their CE requirements will be automatically placed in the audit process.
