Frequently Asked Questions

What is the CDP?

The CDP is the Center for Deployment Psychology. Our mission is to train military and civilian behavioral health professionals to provide high-quality, culturally-sensitive, evidence-based behavioral health services to military personnel, veterans and their families.

Am I eligible for a particular training?

The CDP provides a variety of training to several different audiences. Some of these events are restricted to specific groups, i.e. active duty military or those who have already completed a specific training through the CDP. Read the requirements of the training that you're interested in and if you still have questions, please contact the program directly via email or write to

Why does the site/page not display properly?

One of the most common reasons for this is that you may be using an out-of-date Internet browser. This site is optimized for the current generation of browsers and if you're using an older one, things might not look quite right. We suggest downloading the most current version of the browser of your choice.

If this is not possible, we are working on improvements to the site to support legacy browsers and hope to have that in place eventually.

I haven't received my Continuing Education certificate

Continuing Education certificates aren't issued by CDP. CE certificates are sent within approximately four weeks following a workshop to the email listed on the sign-in sheet.  If you have further questions please feel free to contact our CE administrator directly: Bridget Schaub at or 800 844-8260

Also, please check your spam filter as it is possible they have already been sent out and some email servers will deliver them there.  When certificates aren't received, it's usually for one the following reasons: spam filters, incorrect email, lack of full attendance, not signed in for both days, no evaluation turned in, or illegible handwriting. Please note that CMI/PESI charges $10 to replace lost certificates.
