The State Board of Licensure of Dietetic Practice was established to recognize the professional qualifications of dietitians and dietetic technicians and to assure the availability to the public of information regarding those who hold themselves out to be dietitians and dietetic technicians.
The primary responsibility of the Board is to examine and license qualified applicants to practice as dietitians and dietetic technicians in the State of Maine.
Effective March 1, 2019, the Office of Professional and Occupational Regulation (OPOR) will no longer issue paper license verifications. License verifications are available, free of charge, on OPOR’s official database, https://www.pfr.maine.gov/ALMSOnline/ALMSQuery/Welcome.aspx?board=4240. This database is updated in real time as changes occur. The Office of Professional and Occupational Regulation considers this information to be a secure, primary source for license verification.
Future correspondence from the Board of Licensing of Dietetic Practice will be sent to you by email, so please be sure to keep your contact information current. Follow this link to verify your contact information.
