The CBDCE Mentorship Program was created to promote careers that will lead to a CDCES designation by providing candidates with the ability to accrue volunteer DE hours.
This optional program partners experienced Certified Diabetes Care and Education Specialists with health professionals who are interested in gaining experience in providing diabetes education. Being a mentee can play an important role in your path to certification.
You’re eligible to become a mentee if you meet CDCES discipline requirements and agree to provide DE volunteer
hours under the guidance of your CBDCE Mentor.
Your volunteer hours must be accrued within a maximum 4-year period immediately before applying for certification.
