About the NTC Program

The “Nutritional Therapy Consultant” (NTC) program couples the flexibility of self-paced, online study with the benefits of instructor-led conference calls and one in-person workshop. Students will receive access to comprehensive learning materials, reference documents, and video and audio lectures through NTTConnect, the NTA’s online learning management system.

The Foundations

NTC Program Requirements

Students will receive the majority of their instruction in the form of online video and audio lectures, conference calls, and online interaction with the instruction team through NTTConnect, the NTA’s learning management system. Students must have reliable high-speed Internet access and be comfortable working in a primarily online environment.

During the Instructor-led conference calls, students will review the audio and video lecture materials and join in class discussions that complement the curriculum. In addition, students may schedule individual phone conferences to clarify any questions about the course or curriculum during instructor office hours. Students can also ask questions and hold discussions in the online forums.

NTC vs NTP

The 9-month, 15-module NTC course includes the same core curriculum as the Nutritional Therapy Practitioner (NTP) Program, but without the hands-on Functional Evaluation and Lingual-Neural Testing skills. The NTC program is ideal for healthcare practitioners who already use other modalities to evaluate the body, those interested in working primarily with food, diet, and lifestyle recommendations, and practitioners who will be working with distance clients via phone, email, and video conferencing. The NTC program also affords students the flexibility of acquiring NTP certification in two parts: one can first complete the NTC program and then later take the “Functional Assessment Development” (FAD) program to gain NTP certification.

In-Person Workshop

All NTC students are required to attend a 3-day in-person workshop that goes into extra detail on the client interview process, diet and lifestyle assessments, and a review of the course material. Students can only miss a total of 4 class hours (the equivalent of one-half of a workshop day) to receive NTC certification. If more than 4 hours are missed, students must make up the hours by arranging private tutoring with the Lead Instructor at their standard hourly rate.

NTC Certification

Upon completion of the NTC program, passing the midterm and final, and completing all homework, one will be certified as a “Nutritional Therapy Consultant” by the Nutritional Therapy Association, Inc.®. Note that a Nutritional Therapy Consultant does not diagnose or treat disease, but instead makes nutritional recommendations for balancing the body and promoting optimal wellness. NTCs are approved by the NTA as a certifying organization, but are not licensed or certified by any state. Please check with your state for specific information on licensing requirements.

Financing for the NTC classes is available through the Tulip Financial Empowerment Center with Harborstone Credit Union. In order to apply for a loan to finance the NTC program, you will need to go to Harborstone’s website and apply for a Personal Loan online. When it says, “any other information you want to supply to the credit union,” you will need to make a note that the loan is for Tulip/NTA. Once you have completed the application, you will need to email johna.larue@Harborstone.com to let Johna know you have applied for the NTA Professional Development Loan so she can process it accordingly. Registration will be confirmed upon receipt of tuition in full.

We thank you for your patience during this transition and will update the website once the change has taken place. If you have any questions, you can email nta@nutritionaltherapy.com.
