Professional Nutritionist

At the most basic level, nutrition is about eating a regular, balanced diet. Good nutrition helps fuel your body. The foods you eat supply the nutrients your body needs to maintain your brain, muscle, bone, nerves, skin, blood circulation, and immune system.

This practitioner class has been designed to provide an in-depth look into the complexities of healthy nutrition providing you with a practitioner certificate once completed. This enables you to set up as a nutritionist offering advice to all who require information about their diet.

Importantly, there is the potential for variety as you will see a variety of clients often with very unique requirements and they will need your help regarding weight loss, weight gain, dietary advice for a meat-free diet or information to help improve health conditions or for sports nutrition etc.


Upon successful completion of this course you will receive a Certified Diploma which is fully accredited with the IPHM and recognised for insurance purposes by Westminster and Towergate Insurance.

For those who wish to obtain insurance cover to practice their new skills on the public, after you have completed this course, we will give you details on how to go about obtaining insurance through our insurer to ensure you are fully covered.
