Distance Learning

18 MONTHS

The Nutrition Consultant Training Program is available online via distance learning. Our distance learning option brings the classroom to the students so that people who live far away, have time constraints, or simply prefer to work from home can receive our nutrition training with a cohort of students in an online format. Students may begin the distance learning program at four specific times per year—February, May, August, and November. Our cutting-edge business curriculum, delivered through the Bauman Business Institute, is integrated into the program to make career dreams a reality. By the completion of the program, students are prepared to work as nutrition professionals, providing expert evaluation of and recommendations for diet, targeted nutrients, and lifestyle that will support their future clients to slow or reverse the progression of chronic illness and obtain optimal health.

Through our Career Services, students are provided the necessary resources to choose and be successful on their career paths. With access to the Career Services Platform, students can search for jobs; view and sign up for events; and access articles, podcasts, videos, and other career-related resources. Bauman College continues to support students upon graduation with robust Alumni Support and Career Services so that alumni have the tools they need to continue on the road to achieving their career goals.

The science-based curriculum is presented in a variety of ways to appeal to diverse learning styles. Online multimedia lectures are augmented by current and comprehensive textbooks, workbooks, videos, and supplemental materials that keep the program fresh with the most current research.  Students have the benefit of regular group  virtual calls with peers and Bauman College Distance Learning Instructors who will guide them through the entire program.  Additionally, distance learners have access to faculty through one-on-one office hours and can connect with other students through faculty-moderated discussion boards.
