This practice offers a way to present a large amount of information about registration requirements in a clear and concise way.

The College of Dietitians of Ontario (CDO) presents its information in an easy-to-follow format. It has created tables specific to applicants' backgrounds (i.e., trained in Canada, trained in USA, internationally trained or registered in another province).

Each table has two columns and nine rows. Each row is dedicated to one registration requirement. Entries in the left column identify registration requirements; entries in the right column describe how each requirement may be met.

Information is written in plain language. This layout enables quick and easy access to essential registration information.
