Credit Portfolio
How-to Guide

If you obtained or maintained your CDE® in 2019 you are required to use the 2019 Credit Portfolio Handbook. If you obtained or maintained your CDE® in 2015 through 2018 you may choose to use the How to Guide (2015 thru 2018) or the Handbook (2019) but not both!

Credit Portfolio Update

You can upload your portfolio in PDF format directly to CDECB when you apply to maintain your CDE® designation. When you download and save with your application, you will not need to submit a hard copy of the original to CDECB, unless CDECB requests it during the verification process. Your portfolio can be split into a maximum of two PDF documents for easy uploading.


Peer Reviewed Journals

The Certification Maintenance by Credit Portfolio Committee has compiled a list of journals and whether they are peer-reviewed or not for the purposes of Credit Portfolio submission. This is not a complete list of all acceptable peer-reviewed journals.
