Natural Nutrition Diploma Program

This diploma program consists of 18 courses with cutting-edge science and practical tools. The Natural Nutrition Diploma Program teaches students to do individual client assessments and to give nutritional recommendations. Graduates receive a diploma, a professional designation and title (according to province), and a strong foundation for a fulfilling career as a practitioner in the complementary health industry. 

Students have a maximum of three years to complete the Natural Nutrition program, but it may be completed in a little over a year if enough time is devoted to studying (please note that in order to complete sooner, payments must be made sooner). An additional two months are allowed in which to prepare for and complete the final exam. If the program is not completed within three years, it is possible to arrange an extension (fee applies). Upgrading may be required before writing the final exam.
