The Canadian Dietetic Registration Exam (CDRE) is a national examination developed and administered by the Alliance of Canadian Dietetic Regulatory Bodies. The CDRE is a one day multiple choice examination designed to test practice-based knowledge, application, and critical thinking skills required to competently and safely practice dietetics. The CDRE is administered in May and November each year at designated sites across Canada.
Candidates must apply to write the exam by submitting the exam application form and $525 exam fee. The deadlines for applying to write the exam are April 1 for the May exam and October 1 for the November exam. To obtain an application form, contact the SDA office (firstname.lastname@example.org).
