Overview

In this course you will develop a strong foundational understanding of nutrition in the human body. Over 14 units you will come to understand the main systems of the human body, and how what humans consume (in diet and supplements) combines with their activity level (exercise) and pathology (dietary disorders) to determine their overall health.

In this course you will explore the main systems of the human body, specifically looking at how nutrition is taken in and utilized to provide energy and build our bodies. You will learn about the various vitamins and minerals that humans need and how they work, while also exploring the impact of water and other nutrients on people. You will learn about metabolism, vegetarianism, fat storage and more. All of this works towards a final discussion on how to consult with future clients to help them understand the role that nutrition and activity level plays in their health, wellness and longevity. In short, you will learn how important a nutritionist can be in helping people to lead long, healthy lives.

This course is a distance learning course and is fully certified, upon succesful completion of the course assessment you can get insured to practice as a Nutritionist and to start seeing clients.

Other work options are available to a certified nutritionist too:

Not everyone relishes the prospect of being self employed. For those looking to gain other employment, a certificate in nutrition will enable you to work in a health food store or work in a nutrition research company. Gyms and fitness centres welcome trained nutritionists to their teams.

Whichever route you take, employed or self employed, a registered nutritionist can demand a salary of around £30,000 depending on their geographical location.

FAQs

What does study method mean?

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At reed.co.uk courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

What are CPD hours/points?

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. If you work in certain professions or for certain companies, your employer may require you to complete a number of CPD hours or points, per year. You can find a range of CPD courses on reed.co.uk, many of which can be completed online.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as ABC Awards and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
