Practicals

In addition to regular classroom instruction in natural nutrition, each student completes a minimum of 50 hours of mandatory practicals, out of approximately 100 hours offered to students. The main focus of the practicals is case study work, including follow-up case studies.

Practical work is completed under the supervision of a qualified holistic nutrition professional, through the presentation of case studies, role-playing, group studies and lectures by guest speakers. In these sessions, students have the opportunity to develop assessment and interviewing skills essential to success in the field of holistic nutrition.
