The Dietitians Association of Australia (DAA) is the national association of the dietetics profession in Australia. The DAA has developed credentialing systems for the titles ‘Accredited Practising Dietitian’ (APD) and ‘Accredited Nutritionist’ (AN) which are protected by law, and only qualified practitioners who have met certain requirements can use these titles. All APDs have completed a minimum of a University degree accredited by DAA, a specified level of continuing education and professional development reviewed annually by DAA.
