During 2017, the Idaho Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics will be highlighting our members and what they do as the ‘Nutrition Experts’ for our great state of Idaho. Today we are recognizing:
Monica Perry, RDN, LD
Program Director for the Idaho Nutrition & Foodservice Professional Online Training Program
As a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist, what do you do?
This is my 13th year as the Program Director for the Idaho Nutrition & Foodservice Professional Online Training Program (formerly known as the Dietary Manager Course). This 12 month online distance learning course is designed for students who are looking for a career change or are currently employed in foodservice but aspire to be credentialed as a Certified Dietary Manager, Certified Food Protection Professional. (CDM, CFPP). Graduates may apply to sit for the credentialing exam, active ANFP membership, and upon successfully completing the exam may use the CDM, CFPP credential after their name.
Our course is required for dietary managers working in skilled nursing facilities, in Idaho. CMS regulations released in November, 2016 now require dietary managers in skilled nursing facilities to be a certified dietary manager, certified food manager or similar national certification for food service management and safety from a national certifying body.
How can someone reach you to access your services?
