DTR Information Session

Learn about the Dietetic Technician Registered Credential

Graduation is just around the corner...

SNAC will be holding an information session for Dietetics students to learn more about the DTR credential. This session is being held exclusively for juniors and seniors approaching graduation. The DTR is an excellent option for all graduating Dietetics students to consider if you will not be going directly into a Dietetic internship. You can earn the DTR credential after completing the DPD program and no internship is required, only a passing grade on the exam. Many entry-level positions for the non-RD nutrition professional will require or prefer that you have the DTR credential.


Stay up to par with the DTR!
