What Is the DANB CDE Audit?

DANB conducts audits of certificant CDE credits and DANB-accepted CPR, BLS or ACLS. Though most audits are done on a random basis, some may be conducted at DANB’s discretion. With the DANB CDE Audit, DANB verifies that certificants have earned the required CDE credits and CPR certifications as outlined in the Recertification Requirements.

What to Expect if You’re Audited

If you are selected for an audit, there’s no need to panic. As long as you have kept careful records of your CDE credits, the audit should be a simple and painless process. Your DANB certification will be valid during the audit. You will receive an email from DANB requesting that you provide documentation of participation in all CDE activities used for your certification renewal. You will also be asked for documentation of maintaining DANB-accepted CPR, BLS or ACLS for your entire renewal period through the present date.

Keep Records of Your CDE Credits

For your convenience, DANB has created the CDE Recording Form to track your CDE. Download this form, fill it out and keep it in your records for two years. If you are selected for an audit, send this form along with CDE documentation to DANB as instructed. Do not submit the CDE Recording Form to DANB unless you are selected for a DANB CDE Audit.
