Dietetic Technicians

Advancement Prospects

Beginning dietetic technicians are usually closely supervised because there is so much to learn about the operations of their new employers. After a time, however, the technicians are often able to take on greater responsibilities and earn higher pay. Often, technicians who have proven their abilities are allowed to perform some of the same functions as entry-level dietitians, such as prescribing diets or diagnosing nutritional problems. With the expanded range of duties, a technician may earn higher pay, while either keeping the same title or officially changing positions. For example, a dietetic technician could be promoted to the position of kitchen manager.
