Attention Nutrition Teachers/Educators/Curriculum Developers! 

Do you work as a teacher/professor of nutrition in a post-secondary education, college or university setting? If so, a letter from your employer, indicating that you have met the annual Continuing Education requirements for your job will satisfy the annual NANP CE requirement.

CEU Terms

All CEU credits must be earned during the current membership year. If you exceed CEU requirements, extra CEUs will not roll over at renewal. For example, a member whose effective date is June 1 will have a renewal cycle of June 1- May 31. CEUs that apply to the renewal date of June 1 must be earned by May 31. Any additional CEUs earned during that time period cannot be applied to the next year’s membership term.
