I want to pursue Professional Development with Dietitians of Canada.

Please check common questions below to see if your query has already been answered.

  • What do I get with my online course registration?

    You obtain a 90-day access to the course, from date of purchase. Courses include readings, multimedia elements (video/ audio/ slide presentations), quizzes, case studies and a final exam. Most courses take between 6 – 8 hours to complete.

    If you achieve 80% or better on your final exam, you can download a certificate of completion for the course. 

  • How do I register my group of students to an online course?

    Only the course coordinator can make a request for a group registration. The group must be a group of students currently enrolled in a formal education program. There is no minimum group size.

    The course coordinator must prepare a spreadsheet with each student's first name, last name and email address, in three separate columns, and send this spreadsheet to france.bertrand@dietitians.ca.

    Upon enrolment, the course coordinator receives course access instructions that can be disseminated to the group. 

    An invoice will be sent to the course coordinator after the students have been registered. It is the course coordinator's responsibility to provide payment to Dietitians of Canada.

  • How do I get my certificate for my online course?

    You must achieve a mark of 80% on your final examination. You will only have access to the course for 90 days from the purchase date so be sure you claim your certificate of completion before the end of that period.

    To access your certificate:

    1. Visit our online course platform here: http://courses.dietitians.ca

  • What is the difference between Learning on Demand and online courses?

    Learning on Demand (LOD) sessions are recorded presentations of live events available for viewing or listening. They are generally between 60 – 90 minutes in length. They do not come with a certificate of completion but do include a professional development record for your continuing competence portfolio. Access is unlimited for each item you select.

    Online courses are usually between 6 – 8 hours in length. They include readings, case studies, quizzes, and some audio or video content as well as a final exam. On successful completion of the course (80% or better on the final exam) you may claim a certificate of completion. Access is limited to 90 days from the date of purchase.

  • Where do I find LOD sessions I have purchased?

    Access purchased Learning on Demand (LOD) items in My Library. To see My Library in the Learning on Demand menu you must first be logged into the DC website.

  • What’s included in the All-Access Pass (AAP)?

    The All-Access Pass includes most of the Learning on Demand presentations available under “Learn > Learning on Demand.” The Pass does not include the online courses listed here and found at http://courses.dietitians.ca.
