Exam Questions

Each question is designed to test if the candidate possesses the knowledge necessary to perform the task or has the ability to apply it to a job situation. Questions on the exam are linked directly to tasks identified in the Exam Content Outline (ECO).  Understand that the questions are not written to trick you; instead, they are written in a way that allows the exam to verify mastery of a body of knowledge related to diabetes and diabetes education and your ability to apply that knowledge and analyze situations about that knowledge.

Review the ECO to assess your knowledge across the Outline
