Earning Category II CECs
Category II CECs can be earned by receiving credit for programs offered by other organizations that have NOT been pre-approved by NANP for CECs. NANP recognizes that there are many quality continuing education programs available to nutrition professionals and we encourage all providers to apply to the NANP for CEC approval of their programs.
