Continuing Education

Woman looking at computer

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) invites health care professionals to earn free continuing education (CME, CNE, or CEU) through Web-based, self-study courses on the diagnosis and treatment of chronic fatigue syndrome.


Reading the course curriculum is a requirement for obtaining continuing education, as is a post-test and course evaluation. The post-test (exam) and evaluation are accessible after completion of the course content.


Non-providers may read the available course curricula in their entirety. Only providers seeking continuing education will be able to access the post-test and evaluation.


  1. Choose one of the courses listed in the available courses section below. Click on the links provided below for a more detailed description and access to the course content.
  2. Take the post-test for the respective course and score 70% or higher to become eligible to receive a continuing education certificate. Participants receive two opportunities to score a passing grade.
  3. Take the required course evaluation.
  4. Print the continuing education certificate.
