The CSDS Accreditation Program is designed to keep professionals sharp and relevant within the industry. This means that if you took a course six years ago, it wouldn’t count this year as “continuing education” – accreditation must be maintained. In order to preserve the designation, a CSDS must achieve 20 CSDS Continuing Education Units (CEUs) annually (roughly May 1 – April 30). CSDS will be notified when we enter the new annual cycle, all CEUs reset to zero, and CSDSs need to begin accrual once again. CSDSs may refer to the CSDS Handbook for more details.
