Frequently Asked Questions

What can I call myself?

The qualification does not confer a specific job title. Most of our graduates call themselves a nutrition adviser or nutrition coach.

Will I be able to write meal plans?

As part of this course, you will learn how to write meal plans for a variety of clients.

The purpose of this is to give a client examples of what a days eating could look like, ensuring that it meets that client’s energy and nutrient needs. It isn’t about ‘prescribing’ a set way of eating that the client must follow as this approach is rarely the most effective way of helping clients establish long term behaviour change. Our meal planning course explains in what situations a meal plan might be beneficial and what precautions need to be considered.

You will not be qualified to write meal plans for clients with medical conditions.

What type of clients can I work with?

This course will give you the knowledge and skills to work with clients that are generally healthy, who want to improve their diet in order to optimise their health, lose weight, or achieve a specific exercise-related goal. You will not be able to work with clients who have medical conditions that require specialised dietary advice as this is the role of a dietitian.

Who are the AfN?

The Association for Nutrition (AfN) 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 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.

What are the career prospects?

You can help clients improve their diet and lose weight through one-to-one consultations or by running weight loss classes. You can also use your nutrition skills in a range of job roles such as catering, corporate wellbeing, and community health programs.
