“We work to maximize the educational opportunities for all the professionals who attend the Symposium. A professional's time is valuable, which is why we developed the two-day live format,” said Bonnie Harken, Managing Director at the iaedp™ Foundation.
PEKIN, Ill. (PRWEB) October 25, 2019
The iaedp™ Foundation, recognized for excellence in first-quality education and training standards to an international multidisciplinary group of healthcare treatment providers who treat the full spectrum of eating disorder problems, will once again offer the highly popular Core Courses needed for certification in a live, two-day, 12-hour track at Symposium 2020. The courses are regularly offered in a self-paced, online format.
The Core Courses will begin just prior to the start of the iaedp™ annual Symposium, running Wednesday and Thursday, March 25 – 26, 2020. Opening day for the Symposium itself is March 26, and events continue through March 29 at the Omni at ChampionsGate in Orlando. The Core Courses may be taken to satisfy the requirements for the Educational Designation, Certification, or may be taken as a refresher. If a professional is pursuing certification, all other prerequisites regarding education, experience and supervision apply. Both the Educational Designation and Certification require a successful completion of a written final examination post-Symposium.
Each three-hour class is presented by eating disorder professionals nationally known in the field for their treatment expertise along with a co-presenter from the iaedp™ certification committee. “We work to maximize the educational opportunities for all the professionals who attend the Symposium. A professional's time is valuable, which is why we developed the two-day live format,” 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 courses prior to the Symposium, they’re able to accomplish as much as possible,” added Harken.
The Core Courses are offered as a separate track for $375 or combined with a 2020 Symposium registration for an additional $250. Course titles are: Overview of Eating Disorders, Therapeutic Treatments for Eating Disorders, Nutrition Therapy for Eating Disorders, and Medical Treatment of Eating Disorders.
