Upon completion of this certificate, the students will be eligible to take the CDM Credentialing Exam to become a Certified Dietary Manager. The Association of Nutrition & Foodservice Professionals approves this certificate. Certified Dietary Managers supervise and oversee dietetic services in long-term care facilities, hospitals, schools, correctional institutions and other non-commercial foodservice settings. They are trained to understand the basic nutritional needs of their clientele. Dietary managers work in partnerships with registered dietitians. The dietary manager is responsible for purchasing, sorting, preparing, and delivering balanced nutritional meals. They provide menu variety while maintaining nutritional requirements within cost/profit objectives. The curriculum is separated into four major classroom components: nutrition and medical nutrition therapy, management of foodservices, human resource management, sanitation and food safety. The program will be completed in two semesters.
