Kentucky Board of Diabetic Educators

Kentucky Board of Licensed Diabetes Educators

The mission and purpose of the Kentucky Board of Licensed Diabetes Educators is to regulate the practice of diabetes education in Kentucky and to ensure safe and competent diabetes education to all people in the Commonwealth. The board licenses all eligible candidates for entry into the profession of diabetes education. It recommends appropriate changes in the law to assure fairness and equality. The board conducts formal hearings when necessary and prosecutes by due process any violators of KRS 309. The board is a self-supporting agency and receives no General Fund tax appropriation. It is funded entirely through fees assessed for licensing its professionals.
 
Any time that you wish to check the status of your license or print an official verification of your license, you can use the online license verification tool by clicking on “online services” in the yellow bar across the top of the page and then clicking “license verification.”

Note:  Any correspondence received in the board office or on the Kentucky Board of Licensed Diabetes Educators website becomes public information and will be shared with the board members. Comments and questions can be directed by email to Board Administrator Jennifer Hutcherson.
 
Once licensed, the credential initials are as follows:
  • Licensed Diabetes Educators (LDE)
  • Master Licensed Diabetes Educators (MLDE)
The Office of Occupations and Professions anticipates online renewals will not be available after 4:00 PM on April 21, 2016, until further notice.  As we transition to a new platform, users may download forms from the “Resources” tab then “Applications and Forms”.   
 
Please avoid phone calls to Occupations and Professions staff during this period to allow processing of paper applications. Priorities will be given to occupations and professions without grace periods or to those with billing issues related to end of month licensure.
 
It is our hope this will be a brief interruption in our online abilities and the licensing system will be a substantial improvement in user access and expectations.
 
                                                 
The Office of Occupations and Professions suggests completing your renewal at least two weeks prior to your expiration date.
