Through Friday, March 28, 2014 (no exceptions), the IHS Division of Diabetes is partnering with the American Association of Diabetes Educators (AADE) to offer AADE training for IHS, Tribal, and Urban Indian health program employees who:
- Are currently working with people with diabetes or at risk for diabetes
- Seek to enhance their knowledge and skills in diabetes self-management education (DSME)
The following training programs are offered:
The AADE provides CE credit for all courses except Fundamentals of Diabetes Care. CE certificates are issued to participants after receipt of their post-course test and evaluation.
Nurses, dietitians, pharmacists and other licensed health care professionals are eligible to apply. Applicants must have a current position as an IHS, Tribal, and Urban Indian health (I/T/U) program employee.
There is no limit on the number of courses that an individual can apply for. A separate application is required for each course. All registrations must be submitted on or before Friday, March 28, 2014 (no exceptions).

c/o the Hill Group
Once your application is received, the Hill Group will verify that you meet the eligibility requirements for that course. Then the application will be sent to the Division of Diabetes for final approval. If approved, you will receive confirmation of your acceptance from the Hill Group within one week from the date your application was received.
Your approved application will be forwarded to AADE for final registration. AADE will then send you an email confirmation of your registration within two business days. If you do not receive this notification from AADE, please notify the Hill Group (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The Division of Diabetes is charged $25 to $100 administrative fees for every registered person who does not attend a course. If you are not able to attend a course or must change the course for which you have registered, notify the Hill Group (email@example.com) as soon as you know. Early cancellation fees are much less than fees for late cancellations.
Important: Any participant who fails to attend a pre-paid course without cancelling their registration will not be eligible for funding to attend future Partnership courses.
In addition to completing AADE post-course requirements, you will be required to:
- Email a copy of your AADE “Statement of Credit” certificate to the Hill Group (firstname.lastname@example.org) within 1 week of receiving it.
