Some good diabetes certificate programs are the diabetes paraprofessional and diabetes educator programs offered by the American Association of Diabetes Educators, according to the organization's official website. Another option is the diabetes certificate program offered by Ohio University, as stated on the school's website.
AADE offers two levels of diabetes paraprofessional certificates. The Diabetes Paraprofessional Level 1 program is suitable for students who are not health care workers, as noted on the AADE website. The level 2 certificate targets those already in the field, such as medical assistants. The diabetes educator certificate also has two levels. Level 1 teaches students how to provide self-care advice to diabetes patients, while the level 2 program is for those who have advanced knowledge in diabetes.
