those whose qualifying period is ending 5/31/15.   Some will be randomly selected for an audit; additionally, all of those who did not complete their 45 CE hours will automatically be entered into the process. 

CDMs are responsible for tracking their own continuing education (CE) hours, and submitting them at the end of their three-year cycle.  CDMs should save all continuing education-related documentation (proof of attendance, certificates of completion, etc.) for two three-year certification cycles in case of a CE audit.
