Credit Portfolio Handbook

The 2019 Credit Portfolio Handbook may be used in years 2019, 2020, 2021 and 2022.

If maintaining in 2021 CDE®s may use the How to Guide issued in 2016 thru 2018 or the 2019 Credit Portfolio Handbook but not a combination of the Guides or Handbook. Chose one and utilize it for all of your submission years.

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.
