Earning Continuing Education
You can enjoy many options for earning CE… CE books, approved articles, and online courses, to name a few! Browse the ANFP Publications & Services guide for CE choices, or visit the Earn CE Now section of the ANFP website.
You may attend a program that has been approved for CE by CBDM in advance (a program with “prior approval” - obtained for a group), or you may submit a program you have already attended that you feel should qualify for credit.
Prior-Approved Programs: Examples of prior-approved programs include the ANFP Annual Meeting and ANFP Chapter meetings (provided that chapter meeting planners have completed the prior approval process in advance with CBDM). Planners of industry-related meetings may request prior approval from CBDM and can confirm to you whether a meeting is CBDM-approved for CE. ANFP Food Protection Connection articles, Nutrition Connection articles, most ANFP online courses, and some ANFP books are also prior-approved for CE, and their descriptions will indicate this.
More About Prior Approval
Programs with Prior Approval: Programs with prior approval have been submitted to CBDM headquarters for review and approval before an event takes place, through a Prior Approval for a group. All educational activities are evaluated for CE value based on program content and timeframe. Requests for prior approval should be submitted 8 weeks before the event takes place. Only the program coordinator can request prior approval for a group.
