What is “ADA CERP” for Continuing Education?
Recognizing the need to offer ADA members and the dental community a way to select continuing education (CE) with confidence, and to promote the continuous improvement of CE, the American Dental Association's Continuing Education Recognition Program (ADA CERP) was established in 1993. Through an application and review process, the ADA CERP evaluates and recognizes institutions and organizations that provide continuing education (CE).
The ADA CERP evaluates providers in 15 aspects of program quality. Only CE providers that can meet the ADA CERP's standards and procedures are granted ADA CERP approval and are authorized to use the ADA CERP logo and/or approval statement on their publications. Once approved, CE providers are held accountable for maintaining those same high standards. For more information about the ADA CERP standards and procedures, to review the current list of recognized providers, and other information about the ADA CERP, go to http://www.ada.org/prof/ed/ce/cerp/index.asp .
Georgia Health Sciences University College of Dental Medicine is an ADA CERP Recognized Provider.
ADA CERP is a service of the American Dental Association to assist dental professionals in idenfitying quality providers of continuing dental education. ADA CERP does not approve or endorse individual courses or instructors, nor does it imply acceptance of credit hours by boards of dentistry.
