The Nutritional Therapy Association, Inc.© offers the Nutritional Therapy Practitioner Program in a distance learning format. This program gives students 9 months of training with the flexibility of self-paced study, teleconference calls and 3 separate multiple-day, instructor-led workshops during the fifteen-module course. Students will receive access to comprehensive learning materials, reference documents, video and audio lectures through our online learning management system NTTConnect. Students must have reliable, high-speed internet access and be comfortable working in an online environment.
During the Instructor-lead teleconference calls students will review the audio and 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 module-based homework, book reviews on all required reading, a community outreach project and outside client/practitioner exercises. Students will be required to attend 3 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 NTP 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.
