Choose your name from the drop-down list and fill in your CDEI™ verification ID. If you don't know your CDEI™ verification ID, you can look it up here: https://www.idecc.org/content.cfm?page=cdei_search.

As part of the second renewal application, you will have an opportunity to update your contact information. Then, you'll be presented with several essay questions asking you to relate your understanding of key concepts from the CDEI™ courses, and how you have applied them as an instructor. You can complete the questions in any order and stop and come back at any time. Once you complete the essay questions and pay the renewal fee of $205, your CDEI™ designation will be renewed for another three years.

CDEI™ Third Renewal Plus - $200

For the third renewal and following, we offer a catalog of 3-5 hour courses on specialized topics relevant to distance education instruction. You'll be able to choose two courses that interest you for each renewal cycle. Upon completing each course, you'll earn a badge which you can display to highlight your experience in the field of study. Upon completing two courses, your CDEI will be renewed for 3 years.

If your renewal is less than 6 months away, an account has already been created for you at Learner Community using the email address associated with your CDEI record. You'll receive more detailed instructions in your renewal notification email.
