About the NTP Program

The Nutritional Therapy Practitioner (NTP®) Program couples the flexibility of self-paced, online study with the benefits of instructor-led conference calls and three in-person workshops. 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

NTP Course Requirements

Course requirements consist of module-based homework and quizzes, book reviews on required texts, a community outreach project, a series of client-practitioner exercises, a midterm exam (written and practical), and a final exam (written and practical). To take the course, 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.

In-Person Workshops

The mandatory 3 workshops include hands-on instruction in the NTA’s unique Functional Evaluation and Lingual-Neuro Testing process, diet and lifestyle assessments, review of course material, and midterm and final examinations (both written and practical). Students can only miss a total of 8 hours of workshop hours (the equivalent of 1 workshop day) to receive NTP certification.

NTP Certification

Upon completion of the program, passing the midterm and final, and completing all homework, one will be certified as a “Nutritional Therapy Practitioner”™ by the Nutritional Therapy Association, Inc.®. Note that a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner does not diagnose or treat disease, but instead makes nutritional recommendations for balancing the body and promoting optimal wellness. NTPs 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.
