Most states require dietetic technicians to work under the supervision of a registered dietician except in the area of food preparation. Dietetic technicians are involved in the process of food services and nutritional programs. Dieticians must have a bachelors degree and complete the Registration Examination for Dieticians to become registered dieticians (RD). The Commission on Dietetic Registration administers both the dietetic technician and dietician registration exams. Most states require dieticians to be licensed, certified or registered. Being an RD is often a requirement. Dieticians are involved with providing medical nutrition therapy to patients in addition to supervising dietary departments. 18
