ACEND defines a preceptor as a practitioner who serves as faculty for students/interns during supervised practice by overseeing practical experiences, providing one-on-one training, and modeling professional behaviors and values. Learning acquired while serving as a preceptor for dietetics students in an Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics (ACEND) accredited dietetics program may be awarded CPEUs.

After completing the form below, the Aramark Internship Program Director will review and email the preceptor a CPE certificate for the hours completed. Preceptors must retained the certificate as documentation to be submitted to CDR, if audited.
A maximum of 3 CPEUs per year or a total of 15 CPEUs per 5-year reporting period can be awarded to RDNs or RDs, and NDTRs or DTRs for this activity.
