Functional Assessment Development (FAD)
The Functional Assessment Development program consists of full instruction in NTAs Functional Evaluation process as well as advanced clinical skills. The Functional Evaluation process allows graduates to evaluate nutritional status and specific nutritional needs of their clients. Upon completion, those who graduated the NTC program will be granted the designation Nutritional Therapy Practitioner (NTP). In addition, past NTP graduates who want to refresh their clinical skills are invited to take this course if their certification is current.
Students will be required to attend two multi-day workshops to learn the hands on Functional Evaluation skills as well as take their final practical exams. Students will receive access to comprehensive learning materials and reference documents through our online learning management system NTTConnect. Students must have access to high-speed internet and be comfortable working in an online environment.
During the Instructor-lead teleconference calls students will review the video lecture material and join in on class discussions that complement the curriculum. In addition, students may schedule individual phone conferences for clarifying any questions. Course requirements consist of reviewing lecture content, outside client/practitioner exercises, attendance at workshops and practical examinations. Students will be required to attend two intensive workshops at a designated location. These multi-day sessions will include hands-on instruction that covers client functional evaluations, diet and lifestyle assessments, review of course material, and examinations.
Upon completion of the program and having met all the requirements, you will graduate with a certification from the Nutritional Therapy Association with the designation of a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner™ (NTP). A Nutritional Therapy Practitioner does not diagnose or treat disease. We make nutritional recommendations for balancing the body and promoting optimal wellness. A Nutritional Therapy Practitioner is approved by NTA as a certifying organization, not licensed or certified by any state. Please check with your state for specific information on licensing requirements.
