Get Insured

Once you are qualified as a Nutrition coach, in order for you to practice safely and cover your own business, you will need to obtain professional liability insurance. Without insurance, you would be liable for any costs involved in client incidents.

Future Fit nutrition graduates are able to get insurance through Balens, who are specialist insurance brokers for health and wellbeing professionals.
