Preparation for Practice in Canada for Internationally Educated Professionals in Nutrition

The Internationally Educated Dietitians Pre-registration Program (IDPP) has transitioned into the Certificate in Preparation for Practice in Canada for Internationally Educated Professionals in Nutrition.

The Certificate in Preparation for Practice in Canada for Internationally Educated Professionals in Nutrition is designed to provide internationally educated professionals in nutrition (IEPNs) with a Canadian university certificate to supplement their international credential(s), enabling enhanced opportunities for employment.

The certificate is also designed to assist IEPNs to be academically prepared for practice-based training, a required component to become a Registered Dietitian (RD) in Ontario. Graduates from this certificate will have demonstrated entry level academic competencies in dietetics, as defined by the Partnership for Dietetic Education and Practice’s (PDEP’s) Integrated Competencies in Dietetic Education and Practice (ICDEP).
