Welcome to our game changing new nutrition certification and the first ever women’s nationally and internationally accredited nutrition qualification

With our Certification you will be able to:

- Legally provide meal plans to your female and male clients

- Gain insurance a qualified nutritionist

- Set macro and calorie targets for your clients as a flexible dieting base

- Learn science backed, up-to-date information with real world, practical business advice from successful nutrition coaches in the fitness industry

Why do you need this Certification?

If you’re a Personal Trainer - any advice provided over the most basic Dietary Guidelines, is outside your scope of practice.

The university dietetic pathway is categorically the gold standard, but impractical and unnecessary for many of us – and comes with a $50,000+ price tag.

Most of us don’t wish to work in hospital or diagnostic settings, rather, we’d simply like to have the knowledge, skills, accreditation and insurance to provide personalised nutrition council to the general population.

There’s some good international courses available, but they don’t come with the ability to receive insurance coverage upon graduation. Therefore, they can’t be entertained as a means of obtaining a professional career pathway.

Our Specialised Nutritionist Certificate enables you to practice as a non-clinical nutritionist, at a fraction of the cost and time. With real world practical skills not taught in university.
