The new ADED Contact Hour Associate (CHAP) program is designed to promote quality educational programming offered to certified driver rehabilitation specialists (CDRS). CHAP providers can award CDRS contact hours to their relevant continuing education (CE). Contact hours obtained under the CHAP program can be used by the CDRS towards their certification renewal.

Upon approval, CHAP designation will be in effect for a period of 3 years and any relevant program offered is automatically approved for ADED CDRS CE. CHAP providers will be recognized on a special section of the ADED website and all CE offered by the CHAP provider will be listed to attract CDRS attendees. The ADED CHAP logo can be used to promote CE as a sign of quality and relevance to CDRS professional development needs.


IMPORTANT NOTICE TO CDRS HOLDERS: This new program replaces ADED’s automatic approval policy.  Beginning March 1, 2015, all providers will have to submit application to offer CDRS CE.  All entities covered under that previous policy will no longer receive automatic approval for CDRS contact hours. The benefits of CHAP program are that it will allow you to apply and pay once every three years offering an unlimited number of relevant education courses.


To apply for CHAP designation, please submit an on-line application: CHAP APPLICATION

  • Applicant must be a provider of continuing education that supports the mission of ADED.
  • The applicant’s mission statement must be related one of the following: traffic safety, rehabilitation (physical, cognitive, visual and/or mental health), vehicle modification or assistive technology.
  • The applicant will identify a designated contact person for their organization who will ensure that all programs offered under the CHAP status meet policy.
  • Fees for the program cover all relevant CE offered within the 3 year CHAP status. Fees: $500 (ADED members), $800 (nonmembers).

ATTENTION CHAP PROVIDERS:  Have a new course?  Please click the The ADED-CHAP Program Notification submission portal link to enter the course details.
