PEKIN, Ill. (PRWEB) January 09, 2021
The International Association of Eating Disorders Professionals (iaedp™), 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 disorders, will include the cost for its highly popular core courses needed for certification as part of the 2021 Virtual Symposium registration, a new offering for the 2021 conference.
The Core Courses may be taken to satisfy the requirements for the Educational Designation, Certification or may be taken as a refresher. If a healthcare 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. This track also is appropriate for professionals who are new to the field to receive a comprehensive introduction to eating disorders treatment. All four courses must be completed to be eligible for certification or the educational designation.
Each core course is presented by eating disorders professionals nationally known in the field for their treatment expertise along with a co-presenter from the iaedp™ certification committee. “Our objective is to maximize the educational opportunities for all the professionals who are planning to participate in the 2021 Virtual Symposium,” said Bonnie Harken, Managing Director at the iaedp™ Foundation.
Given the current coronavirus environment in the U.S., the 2021 iaedp™ Symposium will be provided to participants in a virtual format, which premieres on March 18 and runs through September 1. Early registration offers $50 off full price to February 12, 2021.
