This Diet Specialist Diploma builds on the three pillars of nutrition which include understanding food and nutrients, translating these concepts into healthy eating practices and then using this knowledge to effect change in others both on an individual and group level. The course also covers specialist areas including plant-based diets, low fat/carb diets, religious groups, sport groups and children and infant’s diets across their phases of development. It covers diets and disease in more detail than our (Diet Specialist’s) level 4 diploma and also covers important professional and legal topics that anyone advising on healthy eating/nutrition needs to be aware of.
Learn from those who have been running nutrition clinics for over 10 years with our highly experienced registered dietitian and nutritionist tutors. The course will equip you with the knowledge required to advise others on healthy eating in a range of settings, including gyms, health shops and schools, in group sessions or on a one-to-one basis.
The course is completed entirely online and can be studied at your own pace and commenced when you are ready from any device. The course consists of HD videos, a comprehensive downloadable manual, as well as unlimited tutor support. Upon completion you will receive a Diet Specialist diploma certificate.
