The PDP Guide has been newly optimized exclusively for PDF viewing and use. All links that appear inside are active, including Page links, such as those found in the Table of Contents. Steps 1, 2, and 5 are able to be completed and saved within this electronic document. The PDP Guide is being shared on this website so that all current and new dietetics practitioners can have easy access to the PDP Guide.
