Nutrition and Dietetic Technician

Associate of Applied Science Degree


Program Overview

The Nutrition and Dietetic Technician program is a shared program with Milwaukee Area Technical College (MATC). Classes may be offered in a hybrid or online setting to link instruction from both Blackhawk and MATC. In some cases, students may be asked to attend classes outside of their current district. 

This program prepares students for work in healthcare and foodservice management teams. Nutrition and dietetic technicians can work under the supervision of a registered dietitian nutritionist when providing direct client care, or they may work independently when providing general nutrition education to healthy populations.
