Bite-sized Online Learning

CDEP is designed to be done in ‘bite-sized chunks’. Just log in when and where you can and do a few competencies within a topic – one can take as little a minute to do. Once a competency is finished, it will automatically be saved, so none of your work will be lost if you dip in and out!
 

How long will it take me to complete a topic?

Each topic has a different number of competencies and therefore average length of time differs from 45 mins (Promoting self-care) to 5 hours for Nutrition & Physical Activity, but on average it is 1-2 hours.
 

Certificate of Diabetes Competency

Once you finish a topic you can generate a certificate of competency for that specific topic. There are learning resources available to support you and they can be assessed before, during or after the competency assessments.
