Certified Dietary Manager,
Certified Food Protection Professionals (CDM, CFPPs) are nationally
recognized experts at managing dietary operations. Many work in healthcare—nursing
facilities, rehab facilities, senior living communities, or hospitals.
Some work in correctional facilities, schools, and the military. Others
work for corporations. Certified Dietary Managers are trained and qualified
to manage menus, food purchasing, and food preparation; and to apply
nutrition principles, document nutrition information, ensure food safety,
manage work teams, and much more.

Working conditions may include varied hours, long
days, and juggling multiple demands. Certified Dietary Managers work
with both people and paperwork. They tend to be energetic, results-oriented
problem-solvers who thrive on challenge and enjoy teamwork. Employment
in food service is not dependent on economic conditions, and is growing
steadily. The fastest-growing segment of the market is eldercare, an
area where the skills of Certified Dietary Managers are just what the
ANFP offers a CDM Career PowerPoint show, brochures, and other tools
for colleges. We can also help you launch a dietary manager training
program. Call 800.323.1908 for more information.
