Information for Applicants

Becoming registered with the College of Dietitians of Alberta is an essential part of a dietetic career. We establish the education and training required for entry into the dietetic profession in Alberta. Registration with the College assures the public and employers that an individual has met the required standards for academic and practical experience that’s needed to practice dietetics.

The Health Professions Act requires individuals who have the required training and who are currently practicing to be registered. A person must apply for registration with the College if they intend to:

  • Provide professional services directly to the public
  • Provide professional services that are used by other regulated members and individuals to provide services directly to the public
  • Teach the practice of the profession to members of the College or to students of the profession
  • Supervise members of the College who provide professional services to the public
