Nutrition Consultant

Classroom – 18 Months, also available online via distance learning

The Nutrition Consultant Training Program provides students with in-depth knowledge of the foundations of whole-foods nutrition as it contributes to the prevention of illness and the promotion of optimal health. Each topic in the program introduces compelling research on the fundamentals of nutrition: physiology, anatomy, macro- and micronutrient selection, and the effects of food on the body. By the completion of the program, students are prepared to provide expert evaluation of diet and lifestyle and make recommendations for food selection, targeted nutrients, and lifestyle choices that will enable their future clients to improve their health and slow or reverse the progression of chronic illness.
