Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Q: What is the difference between an ADCES certificate program and a certification program or credential?
A: ADCES offers a variety of certificate and assessment-based certificate learning programs. A certificate program is intended to provide training in a specific body of knowledge and/or skillset. Successful completion of a certificate program provides a certificate of completion validating the learner’s participation in the course of study, not a credential. Some ADCES certificate programs require a final assessment to evaluate the learner’s achievement of the intended learning outcomes. These are referred to as “assessment-based certificate” programs. A certificate program generally does not require renewal or CE to maintain the certificate. ADCES certificate programs are not certifications or credentials.

The certification program, or credentialing program, is intended to evaluate an individual’s mastery of an established, formal set of domains and competencies. Certification programs generally require passing an examination following the coursework. They may require documentation of specific practice hours or demonstration of specific skills before the certification can be earned. Usually, a credential is must be renewed through renewal examinations and/or meeting specific CE or other requirements.

Q: What can I do with this ADCES certificate?
A:The certificate program can supplement your present career or help you to begin a new one in diabetes education. The certificate provides recognition for your continuing education efforts and demonstrates your initiative in acquiring additional training in diabetes self-management education. For those who qualify, the CEUs from the program apply to CDCES exam prerequisites and help to prepare you for the exam. The certificate program can be used to set minimum training standards for DSMES program staff. The certificate program also is used by healthcare providers who are not looking for a career in diabetes education, but who find that they and/or their staff need more training in diabetes due to the increasing number of people with diabetes being seen in their practice.
