Application for Registered Nutritionist via Portfolio           
Competency Mapping Form (Part A - Knowledge and Understanding) 
Competency Mapping Form (Part B - Application of Skills & Knowledge)                       

Please note we do not currently accept electronic submissions 

  Return completed application form, mapping forms, portfolio of evidence, a certified copy of your photographic identification, certified degree certificate/transcript(s), and payment, by post to Association for Nutrition.

Please ensure you have attached the correct amount of postage for the weight and size of your envelope as failure to do so will unfortunately result in Royal Mail not being able to deliver your application to the office (remember an envelope larger than A5 and thicker than 4/5 sheets of paper is classed as a Large Letter by Royal Mail). You do not need to send your application special or recorded delivery, but having it weighed at a post office can ensure the correct postage has been applied. 

The evidence portion of RNutr Portfolios must not exceed 50 pages of A4 (these can however be printed double sided - i.e. equalling a max 100 sides).

Please do not present your application and evidence in individual plastic pockets/wallets and/or within ring binders.

Please inform your referees of your application, as we will contact these shortly after receipt of your application and will not be able to send your portfolio to an assessor until references have been received and all other documentation has been confirmed as enclosed (certified ID, CV, supporting statement, mapping forms A&B, accompanying evidence & application fee).

ID and Degree Certificates/Transcripts can be certified as true copies of the original documents by any individual of professional standing, providing they are not related to you, do not live at the same address as yourself and is not a close personal friend.
