Newly Credentialed RDs & DTRs

Welcome, newly credentialed practitioner! Use the following resources to guide you through the recertification and maintenance of your credential.



Yearly Fee

In order to retain your credential, you need to pay a yearly, registration maintenance fee. You will receive your first fee notice within a week of passing your exam. Subsequent fees are billed every June with a August 31st due date. Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics membership and their dues are separate and distinct from registration with CDR.


Professional Development Requirement

All RDs and DTRs must complete continuing education in order to maintain their credential. RDs need 75 credits and DTRs need 50 credits in their 5 year cycle (1 credit must be in ethics.) The Professional Development Portfolio (PDP), is designed to assist credentialed practitioners in planning for their professional development.
