Welcome to the Great Falls College MSU's Dietetic Technician Program website. We are very excited about offering students this new program and career opportunity.
With input from the dietetic community, GFCMSU has created a dietetic technician program. Dietetic technicians are employed in a variety of settings including clinical, foodservice, community programs, fitness and wellness centers, and food companies. They are trained to conduct nutrition screenings, manage food service operations, develop and teach nutrition classes, and develop recipes and menus.
“According to the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics 2007 Dietetic Compensation and Benefits Survey, half of all DTRs in the U.S., who have been working in the field full-time for four years or less earn between $30,000 and $40,000 per year...According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor and Statistics, employment is expected to grow about as fast as the average for all occupations through the year 2014.”
