The Association for Nutrition protects and benefits the public by defining and advancing standards of evidence-based practice across the field of nutrition and at all levels within the workforce.
AfN Course Certification is a quality mark awarded to nutrition courses that meet the competence requirements for their specified sector and level. This quality assurance mark enables students, employers and the public to identify reputable, evidence-based courses in nutrition science.
Certification was granted in September 2017 and is due for renewal in September 2020. Please note that the AfN certification scheme certifies courses, not the individuals who complete them and do not result in any AfN-recognised professional title. Completion of an AfN Certified Course does not enable registration with the AfN as a registered nutritionist. For more information about the certification scheme visit the AfN website:
