Continuing Nutrition Education 2018


A complete and comprehensive Continuing Nutrition Education (CNE) programme for Dietitians and Nutritionists to earn up to a minimum of 30 CPD points annually.

Important Notice

The Division of Human Nutrition at Stellenbosch University will once again be hosting its annual Continuing Nutrition Education (CNE) Programme for Dietitians and Nutritionists in 2018. This programme has become a highly successful annual event with almost 350 participants partaking in 2017.

We are very excited about the growth of the programme, which has been offering 3 options since 2011. In 2018 the residential option (Option A) will take place on 20 and 21 June 2018. In addition, to make the programme accessible to those not able to attend the full 2 days of the residential option, we will make the full offering of PowerPoint slides available electronically (Option B). To earn the full amount of CPD points, participants will have to study the slides in their own time and answer relevant questionnaires. Option C consists of 5 to 6 articles that will have to be studied and questionnaires answered to obtain additional CPD points.

Dietitians and Nutritionists can register for Options A, B or C individually, or the combination of A and C or B and C can be selected. Depending on the option selected, a minimum of 30 CPD points, including a minimum of 5 ethics points, can be earned.

Each practitioner is responsible for maintaining his/her own Individual Activity Report (Form IAR1) until such time as his/her name is drawn for a compliance audit (Click here to download the portfolio form). CNE update 2018 will issue a CPD Certificate to participants who successfully complete the programme, and will keep record of each participant’s units earned for a period of three years after the date that the certificate was issued.

Some documents (extension .pdf) on the CNE Update platform require the use of Adobe Acrobat Reader. If you do not have it installed, you will need to download and install their free PDF viewer. Note that the reason for using the PDF format is that it results in smaller files and therefore faster downloads.
