Dietetic Technician Program
The Dietetic Technician Program is a two-year ACEND-accredited curriculum, which may be pursued on a full or part-time basis. Graduates of ACEND-accredited programs are eligible to write the CDR registration examination for dietetic technicians (DTR).
This 64-hour Associate in Science (AS) degree utilizes the integration of classroom theory with the experience of the laboratory and supervised experience throughout the program. Included in the program are 540 hours of supervised practice under the direction of registered dietitians, which creates real-world experience for students.
Supervised practice settings include hospitals, long-term care facilities, and community-based programs. Students participate as active learners in a variety of settings planned to develop competency as a dietetic technician.
The Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics (ACEND) has granted “Full Accreditation” to the Dietetic Technician Associate in Science degree program at Hillsborough Community College. Graduates of ACEND accredited programs are eligible to write the CDR registration examination for dietetic technicians.
