Description

The Certificate of Human Nutrition course takes you through the latest evidenced-based information about essential nutrition knowledge. It covers defining a ‘good diet’, a review of global dietary guidelines, all you need to know about carbohydrates and sugars, the latest on dietary fats (with special coverage of cholesterol and saturated fats), how protein functions, and a special look at vegetarian and vegan diets. You’ll also look into micronutrients (vitamins and minerals), water balance and hydration. Plus special topics such as early nutrition (including a look at food allergies), pregnancy nutrition, sports nutrition, weight loss nutrition, nutrition of older adults, food safety and a chapter on dietary assessment (based on a non-diet approach). If you’re toying with the idea of a career in nutrition you might want to consider ‘testing the water’ first to see if you want to pursue a career in nutrition. On completion of this nutrition course you can pathway to a degree and receive a unit exemption in the Nutrition or Naturopathic degree at Endeavour College of Natural Health! We recommend you chat with Endeavour College first as there are new requirements for degree entry as of 2018. Also ideal for PTs seeking to work more closely with clients eating.

We teach nutrition not diets! You’ll hold solid foundation knowledge to make, and share, informed decisions, and you’ll be able to know where to find credible information. We don’t cover every diet known to man, we teach you how to evaluate them past, present and future, a life long skill.
