Florida Certified Designated Representative (CDR) Training And More!

Over the years, we've fielded many questions revolving around the Florida Certified Designated Representative license.  Of chief interest, is how to go about preparing for the State of Florida Certified Designated Representative Laws & Rules Examination.

I've invited Dr. Sharon B. Roberts* (an expert in the regulatory realm of pharmaceuticals and wholesale drug distribution, and founder of CDR Resource Center) to share some thoughts and introduce the services that CDR Resource Center can provide:
  • Florida Certified Designated Representative (CDR) laws and rules examination preparation
  • Consulting expertise in prescription drug regulations and wholesale distribution compliance
