CPE Questions
Are all your CE courses approved for RDs and DTRs?
 
Yes. Skelly Skills is accredited as a continuing education provider by the Commission on Dietetic Registration (CDR); therefore, ALL our CE courses are automatically approved for continuing education for RDs and DTRs.
What are the CDR's guidelines on rollover of CPEUs?
 
The Commission on Dietetic Registration allows RD/RDNs to rollover 15 CPEUs per 5 year reporting period, and DTRs to rollover 10 CPEUs. **The guidelines for doing so are very specific and must be followed. For more information on the guidelines on rollover CPEUs, please go here: http://www.cdrnet.org/pdp-cpeu-rollover
How do I get my CPEU/CEUs when I purchase a Skelly Skills CE course?
  Skelly Skills uses an online testing system (located at www.skellyed.com).  Each CE course you purchase will include information on how to access and use our online testing system, as well as the CE exam questions you'll need to answer.  

Once you're ready to get your CPEU/CEUs, simply log onto our testing site (at www.skellyed.com), and follow the directions to create an account.  Once you create your account, you'll need do the following three things:

1. complete and submit the online CE exam
2. complete and submit the online Feedback Survey and Reporting Form
3. download and save your CE Certificate of Completion (which you can access immediately after you've completed #1 and #2 above) for your records

That's it!  Happy learning!
How long do I have to complete a CE course?
  The expiration date of each course is listed on the product page. Check there to learn when the course expires. Each Skelly Skills CE course is initially approved for 3 years from date of course release. After that time, we will review the course for possible extension. If we end up extending the course, we will update the expiration date for that particular course on the product page. You can always check back there for the current course expiration date.
Where can I find the suggested Learning Needs Codes and levels for a CE course?
  On each CE course main page, scroll to the bottom of the page.  Under the section titled 'Suggested Learning Codes and Additional Information', you will find Learning Needs Codes for that program.

**Please keep in mind: these are SUGGESTED Learning Needs Codes only.  CDR allows you to apply ANY Learning Need Code(s) to a given course if you believe it applies.  The same applies if there is a level (1, 2, 3) listed.
Can I use Skelly Skills CE courses toward my Certified Diabetes Educator (CDE) continuing education recertification requirements?
 
Yes. The NCBDE (which certifies CDEs) states that any CPE provider accredited by the Commission on Dietetic Registration (CDR) is a Recognized Provider for CDE continuing education. Skelly Skills is accredited as a CE provider by CDR; therefore, we are automatically approved to provide continuing education to CDEs.
Further, the NCBDE states "Continuing Education must be applicable to diabetes. All subject matter on the Certification Examination Content Outline published in the 2011 Certification Examination Handbook for Diabetes Educators is considered applicable to diabetes."
