CDCES Resources

CDCES resources are available to help promote the value of your CDCES credential to the diabetes community and connect with your fellow CDCESs. 

Shop for CDCES Gear

Show your CDCES pride! Visit the CBDCE Shop on our website to order CDCES-branded merchandise, including lapel pins, retractable ID/badge holders, tote bags, water bottles, and more. 

Get Listed in the 'Locate a CDCES' Directory

It's vital that people with diabetes can locate you. Set up your public profile listing in the CDCES portal so you can be included in the Locate a CDCES Directory. Once you've activated your account on the website, you'll sign in to the portal and set up your public directory listing that includes information about you and your practice.  

Free Promotional Flyers to Help Promote What You Do

Download free promotional flyers to help you promote the value of your CDCES credential to health care providers and people with diabetes. Sign in to your CDCES portal, hover over the Certification menu header, and choose Resources. 

Showcase your CDCES Credential 

Showcase your CDCES credential by using the CDCES logo on your business cards, marketing material, email signature, etc. CBDCE grants permission to use the CDCES logo as long as your certification remains valid. Learn more by going to Newly Certified on the website (scroll down to Promote your Credential).   

Mentorship Program 

Are you an experienced CDCES who is interested in helping grow the number of CDCESs? In the Mentorship Program, mentors help mentees accrue experience in order to meet the practice requirement for initial certification. The program is very rewarding and your mentor activities can be counted as hours toward your CDCES renewal! 

Verification System 

Make it easy for employers, consumers, and healthcare providers to easily verify your CDCES certification status.

Changes to Your Name or Contact Information

It's vital that CBDCE knows if a CDCES has a change in name or personal contact information.  You can submit the update through the CDCES portal under the ‘Account’ section or complete and submit the Record Update form.

Certificates and Wallet Cards

Certificates and wallet cards are provided to those who pass the exam. Look for them in the mail approximately three months after you pass. You can order duplicate certificates and wallet cards by logging into the portal. 

Certificate Frames

We offer beautiful frames with a special border to frame your CDCES certificate through a vendor. To keep costs low, CBDCE does not receive any profits from this product.

Submit your CDCES story, and you may be featured in a future CDCES Certificant Spotlight on our website and social media! Check out the current CDCES Story.
