Short Course Certification

The Nutritional Therapy Education Commission (NTEC) provides certification for nutrition courses that meet the following criteria:

1) The content reflects the evidence-based, bioscience basis of nutritional therapy, which recognizes that nutritional choices affect health outcomes and that each individual has their own unique nutritional needs.

2) The course includes assessment of learning leading to an award.

NTEC Certification does not imply that learners will be trained as nutritional therapists, qualified to work in a therapeutic capacity with clients, or eligible for registration as nutritional therapists.
