Distance Learning - Up to 30 months
The Nutrition Consultant Training Program is available via Distance Learning. People who live far away, have time constraints, or simply prefer to work from home can receive our nutrition training online.
Our Distance Learning option brings the classroom to the students, giving one the flexibility and freedom to pursue in-depth nutrition education on their own time, from their own homes, and in a way that's organic to them. Distance Learning is structured yet flexible and is perfect for busy people who are independent, self-motivated, and who have a desire to improve the world through holistic nutrition.
Distance Learning students receive a series of audio lectures linked to PowerPoint lessons prepared by college Founder and President Dr. Ed Bauman. These are augmented by current and comprehensive textbooks, workbooks, videos, and supplemental materials that keep the program fresh and science based. Students can download the lectures, view them in a multimedia PowerPoint presentation, or upload the audios to their MP3 players and learn on the go.
During their studies, Distance Learning students will have regular phone calls scheduled with a Bauman College Distance Learning Mentor who will guide them throughout the program, from their first lesson to the completion of their Practicum/Fieldwork experience.
Structured Yet Flexible Schedule
Students may begin the Nutrition Consultant Training Program via Distance Learning at any time. Although we allow up to 30 months to complete the program, students may finish in a shorter time. Each student works at a different pace, but a minimum of 10 hours per week is a reasonable basic time commitment to finish the program in 18 months (which is the duration of the classroom program). Students and mentors together work out a time frame for each lesson, which takes into account a student's other life commitments and responsibilities. A recommended pace to ensure completion of the program during the allotted time frame of 30 months would entail each module taking no longer than 30 days to complete. The key to a successful distance learning experience is that students make the time in their lives to research, write, interview, and complete their homework in a timely way and stay in close communication with their mentors.
Distance Learning students receive the same curriculum as our classroom learning counterparts, including the Practicum/Fieldwork segment.
Unlike many other Distance Learning programs, Bauman College students have the benefit of individual telephone consultations with a personal mentor throughout the program. Students will be guided and supported by these regular phone appointments, which allow students to ask in-depth questions, receive detailed feedback on homework for each course topic, review core competencies of the program, discuss client strategy and sequencing, get answers to questions, and monitor progress. Additionally, distant learners have an opportunity to connect with other Bauman College students through the Student Forum.
