Course programme

It is now accepted that the correct nutritional intake is an essential component of fitness. Any form of exercise or activity produces a requirement for extra energy. The Nutrition Advisor’s job is to analyse the dietary intake and energy requirements of their clients and prescribe the means of meeting their particular needs.

This course helps you to understand and apply the science of nutrition to exercise and sport and study in the comfort of your own home via home study workbooks.

On completion of the course you should be able to: Advise amateur athletes and sports-minded clients on their nutritional needs, provide accurate information on the effectiveness and application of sports supplements, and give relevant advice to optimise pre-event, event and post-event nutrition, thus enhancing strength, endurance, overall performance and recovery.

The course covers: Carbohydrates, minerals, fats and proteins, fluids, creatine, caffeine, antioxidants, supplements, vitamins and working with sports minded people.

The Distance Learning Tutors and the Learning Support Team are always happy to answer any questions you may have and give you support and guidance all throughout your training.

On completion you'll receive a course certificate and 20 REPs CPD points.
