Recognition as a CDE is for one year. To retain and renew your CDE status, you must remain a full ADEA member and retain your primary health care professional registration or practicing certificate. You must also meet the ADEA Re-Credentialling Program’s requirements as outlined in the Re-credentialling Points Guide (PDF - 0.50MB). Five points must be from ADEA endorsed activities. A list of ADEA endorsed activities can be found here.

To renew your CDE status, please apply here. Please note that all applications must be submitted at least two weeks prior to your ADEA membership and CDE expiry date.

Fees and Auditing

The annual re-credentialling fee is $59.16 incl GST which is payable together with your membership renewal of $291.00, prior to your application being assessed and approved. 

Resignations that occur prior to the completion of a membership or credentialling period will not attract a refund of fees for the period.

10% of applicants for re-credentialing are selected for auditing each year. Those selected for auditing will be notified once they commence their re-credentialling application.

Please note: Evidence to support professional development (CPD) activities must be provided with the recredentialling application when selected for auditing to maintain CDE status.
