The iaedp™ Foundation Makes It Easy and Convenient for ED Professionals to Receive Certification with Class Offering Just Prior to Annual Symposium

The International Association of Eating Disorders Professionals Foundation (iaedp™) announces the return of precertification courses for professionals at its annual symposium on Feb. 18-21 at the Omni Amelia Island Plantation Resort at Amelia Island, Florida. For experienced eating disorders professionals who qualify, this program is a pathway to the certification process. The program also offers professionals new to the field or who do not specialize in eating disorders an opportunity for the most comprehensive training with a current overview of eating disorder diseases and eating disorder treatment approaches.

Prior to the start of the Symposium, each three-hour class is presented by eating disorder professionals well-known in the field. “A professional's time is valuable, which is why we developed a two-day live format for presenting the classes at our annual symposium,” said Bonnie Harken, Managing Director at The iaedp™ Foundation. “It also can be difficult for many professionals to find time for certification training – and by offering the course prior to our annual Symposium, they’re able to accomplish as much as possible with the training offered at the time of the Symposium.”

The precertification course is offered on Feb. 17 and 18 as a separate track for $200 or combined with a 2016 Symposium registration for an additional $100. Prior to December 15, 2015, registration for iaedp™ certified members is $550, for members, $600 and for non iaedp™ members, $675. Beginning December 16, all costs increase by $50.
