NEW!! The Diabetes Educator Certificate Program has been revised and updated to address the most recent clinical practice guidelines from Diabetes Canada.
This online certificate program is designed to provide regulated health care professionals with the knowledge and skills needed to manage and educate patients with Diabetes. This course reflects competencies described in the Canadian Diabetes Educator Certification Board (CDECB) Handbook and as such will help prepare health care professionals and educators to write the Canadian Diabetes Educator Examination to become certified in Canada to work as a diabetes educator. Participants enrolled in this program will complete six online modules and all other certificate components within a thirteen-week period. You should plan to devote four to eight hours per week to the program. Those who complete the program will receive an official certificate of completion.
