The Dietary Manager program is uniquely designed to help students who are already employed to receive certification while working. The program can be completed in three terms, with classroom work offered one day per week. The courses give a foundation in quantity food production, personnel management, nutrition care principles and food service systems management. The field experience may be completed at the student's worksite or on campus and will provide a practical application of the principles learned in coursework. Students completing the program will be prepared to sit for the national examination to become Certified Dietary Managers approved by the Dietary Managers Association.
