Continuing dental education providers whose primary location is outside the United States or Canada (international providers) may seek ADA CERP recognition for the purpose of obtaining an independent external review, for benchmarking, or to serve the continuing education needs of dental professionals.
International providers interested in participating in ADA CERP must meet additional eligibility criteria outlined in the CERP Policy on the Pre-Application Process for International Providers (PPIP) (PDF) and submit a Pre-Application Eligibility Survey (DOCX). Providers that meet the PPIP requirements will be invited by the Commission to submit a Standard Application for ADA CERP recognition. International providers must also complete an ADA CERP training session before recognition will be granted.
Pre-application Surveys may be submitted at any time. Eligible providers will be invited to submit an application according to published application deadlines. Providers must complete all PPIP requirements within 18 months of notification of eligibility.
Interested providers should review the complete CERP PPIP Policy and instructions (PDF), the Pre-application Eligibility Survey (DOCX) and the fee schedule for international providers (PDF).
