I don't really know what the qualifications are for that particular title, but I can tell you that a Registered Dietitian has at least a 4 year degree in nutrition and has to participate in 900 or more hours of practicum work. Then to get the credential of RD there is an examination administered by the Commission on Dietetic Registration. Then to keep the RD credentials, every 5 years the dietitian must complete 75 continuing education credits.
Hope that helps.
