Dietary Management Program
Students of the Dietary Manager program at Coffeyville Community College are treated to an outstanding educational experience both in the classroom and in the workplace. This program, which is fully accredited by the Dietary Managers Association, prepares and qualifies foodservice professionals to take a national certification exam to earn the credentials of Certified Dietary Manager/Certified Food Protection Professional (CDM/CFPP).
Focusing on the four main areas of dietary services (foodservice management, human resource management, medical nutrition therapy, and food safety and sanitation), students obtain effective skills and techniques necessary for a successful career in a variety of foodservice establishments. The program is directed and taught by a Registered Dietitian, utilizing both classroom discussion and field experience in the workplace.
Before enrolling in the Dietary Manager program, the student must be employed in a foodservice operation in a healthcare facility. Most students are employed in long-term care facilities, hospitals, assisted and residential living centers, and group living centers. These facilities offer the students the type of working environment necessary to complete the field experience requirements of this program.
The Dietary Manager classes meet on alternating Fridays, September through May.
