Train to become a Nutritionist from the comfort of your own home with this comprehensive fully certified Diet and Nutrition Advisor course.

In this course you will develop a strong foundational understanding of nutrition in the human body. Over 14 units you will come to understand the main systems of the human body, and how what humans consume (in diet and supplements) combines with their activity level (exercise) and pathology (dietary disorders) to determine their overall health.

In this course you will explore the main systems of the human body, specifically looking at how nutrition is taken in and utilized to provide energy and build our bodies. You will learn about the various vitamins and minerals that humans need and how they work, while also exploring the impact of water and other nutrients on people. You will learn about metabolism, vegetarianism, fat storage and more. All of this works towards a final discussion on how to consult with future clients to help them understand the role that nutrition and activity level plays in their health, wellness and longevity. In short, you will learn how important a nutritionist can be in helping people to lead long, healthy lives.

This course is a distance learning course and is fully certified, upon succesful completion of the course assessment you can get insured to practice as a Nutritionist and to start seeing clients.
