We must receive a copy of your study permit before the start of the first course, Fundamentals of Nutrition. An English proficiency assessment may be required if you did not complete high school or post-secondary education in an English speaking country. This assessment helps gauge your English language proficiency in reading, writing, and verbal skills. The Natural Nutrition Diploma Program nnsymbol is intensive and includes technical, scientific, and medical language. Success in the program depends upon English language proficiency and this should not be a barrier.

Please contact us at the Vancouver Island branch (Nanaimo and Victoria) if you have any questions.
