Web-Service Credential Verification

Web-Service Credential Verification System

CDR has developed a SOAP based web-service method for licensure boards and employers to verify credential status for credentialed practitioners.  This web service requires your system to provide this web-based system credentialed practitioners' registration identification numbers, and in turn you will receive credential verification of all valid credentials for each individual - RDN, NDTR, Board Certified Specialist.  Once approved, your institution will be provided a unique ID and password to use this service.  Please note that additional software development is required on your end to use the service.  Manual browser based requests are not supported by this service.  Please contact Pearlie Johnson-Freeman at 800/877-1600, ext 4839 or at if you wish to obtain additional information regarding this system verification process.
