Part of the requirements for maintaining the Nutritional Therapy Practitioner™ (NTP) and Nutritional Therapy Consultant™ (NTC) certification from the Nutritional Therapy Association, Inc.® is that every two years, you are required to turn in 24 continuing education units (CEUs).

To qualify, CEUs must have been earned in the 30 months preceding their re-certification date. For example, an NTP or NTC that graduated in June 2015 would need to earn 24 CEUs by the time of their membership renewal comes due on July 30th, 2017. They may use CEUs obtained after January 1st, 2015 and forward.

To maintain an active Graduate NTA Membership (and the ability to use the NTP or NTC credential), NTA graduates are required to obtain a minimum requirement of 24 CEUs every two years. See the CEU FAQ at the beginning of the Certificate Renewal document for full details.

There are many ways to earn valid credits, and we have outlined them in a FAQs document available below.

*Please note that renewal applications must be submitted with all the required elements including 24 CEUs, the completed application, and payment of the membership fee. Individual CEU submissions will not be accepted or stored.


We have additional forms to help you submit your CEUs attached to the Renewal Instructions & FAQ document. Please download the PDF for more details.
