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?
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.
