As society becomes more health conscious, new career paths have opened to serve an expanding demand for experts on nutrition. For those seeking a new career, one such occupation is to become a dietary technician. Or, you may just want to be more informed about nutrients, digestion and metabolism, menu planning, recipe modification, dietary guidelines and restrictions, diet and disease, and healthy cooking techniques for your own health benefit. No matter the reason you choose to take this course, you will be well equipped with a wealth of information to benefit yourself and our health conscious society.
For those considering a career change, many employment opportunities exist for dietary technicians including hospitals, extended care centers, nursing homes, schools, restaurants, and many other outlets. Dietary technicians also work in private practice with a dietician in assessing the dietary needs of individual clients, such as diabetics, helping to teach them to make healthy choices.
