CBDM Prior Approval

New CE Provider Portal Now Available!

The new CE Provider Portal, an online application tool for CBDM Prior Approval, is now available. With the launch of the new portal, paper applications will no longer be accepted.

The ANFP CE Provider Portal has been designed to simplify the application process. It allows one individual from your organization access to submit applications through their individual account with ANFP. An account setup application has been created to establish your login. We encourage you to complete the set up form now and return it to priorapprovals@CBDMonline.org. Directions for logging in and an example of the application process will be returned.

Access the Application

The online application process will require providers to upload the necessary documentation: biographies, learning objectives, a timeline agenda, an educational content evaluation, a certificate of completion, competency levels, and education topics. There are 36 listed topics to choose from that follow the CDM Credentialing Exam blueprint.

Per the CBDM Prior Approval Handbook, applications are requested 4-8 weeks prior to the program/event to allow for processing. All program fees remain the same; however, we have initiated expedite fees for any application received less than 30 days in advance. ANFP will begin charging expedite fees beginning June 1, 2020. Please review the CBDM Prior Approval Handbook for details on required documentation per program type, competency levels/topics and fees.
