The National Diabetes Care Course has been developed by the National Association of Diabetes Centres (NADC) to provide healthcare providers in a range of general care settings with current knowledge of diabetes clinical management and self care regulation.

The course can be completed online at your own pace. Once you have registered for the National Diabetes Care Course via this platform, the NADC will provide you with access to the full course content within two business days. You will receive an email from the NADC, with a link to the course, a personal username and password. From the date of registration, you will have 3 months to complete the course content.

The National Diabetes Care Course costs $594 (inc GST)for non-NADC members and $198 (inc GST) for NADC members (promo code required and this can be added at the end of the registration process, prior to payment). For NADC members, that's less than $10 per module.
