2020 CPDM Announcement

Since its creation in 1994, many DMEC members have earned the Certified Professional in Disability Management (CPDM) designation. This program was a “first of its kind” and continues to be a hallmark for disability management professionals.

As we move into this new decade, DMEC will be stepping away from direct partnership with the CPDM program to focus our efforts on developing additional education and training programs for absence management professionals. The industry is changing rapidly, and we are committed to providing ongoing resources to address these changes.

The Insurance Educational Association (IEA) will continue to administer the CPDM courses, updates, and recertification requirements. For more information on the program, visit CPDM overview page.

DMEC will continue to offer in-person and online education that is preapproved for CPDM CEUs, and IEA will offer DMEC members the ability to submit CEUs earned through DMEC events for free. Learn more about the continuing education submission process.

We at DMEC and IEA look forward to what lies ahead in 2020 and expanding our support for the absence management community!
