These courses provide the health care provider with the skills and knowledge to perform the required hands-on hours in the diabetes education field to meet the exam eligibility requirements by the Canadian Diabetes Educator Certification Board (CDECB). This program covers a breadth of topics including an overview of the disease process, management of diabetes, patient education, living with diabetes, and special issues with diabetes.
