Functional Clinical Assessment Policies:

Cancellation Policy: 

Students enrolled in any Functional Clinical Assessment offerings may cancel their enrollment and receive a full refund within 5 business days from the date of purchase. After 5 business days post-purchase, students are no longer eligible for a refund. In the event of an unexpected and/or extreme life circumstance, students may contact the Student and Community Affairs Team at nta@nutritionaltherapy.com to receive an Exemption Request Form and pursue alternative accommodations or solutions. The NTA reserves the right to approve or deny applicants based on objective criteria and to cancel any class related to logistics or enrollment objectives of the NTA. If a class is cancelled for any reason, the NTA will notify all enrolled students and a full refund will be issued.


Transfer and Deferral Policy: 

Due to the planning and overhead involved with the in-person components of all Functional Clinical Assessment offerings, no transfers or deferrals will be permitted. Students who experience unexpected and extreme life circumstances may contact the Student and Community Affairs Team at nta@nutritionaltherapy.com to request an Exemption Request Form and pursue alternative accommodations or solutions.


Technical Requirements:  

The FCA program is designed for graduates of the NTP program who want to learn the FCA skillset. Enrolled students will be required to access their coursework through our online learning management platform. High-speed Internet access and the ability to work in an online environment is required. It is the responsibility of the student to source outside technical support for all issues related to their computer, hardware, software, internet, and access to the platform owing to issues or limitations of their device(s).


Travel Requirements:  

All FCA offerings require attendance at in-person workshop trainings. Full participation in all workshop days is required for successful completion of the program. Students are responsible for the expenses and logistics associated with their travel, lodging, and food required during the workshop experience.


Force Majeure:

In no event shall the NTA be responsible or liable for any failure or delay in the performance of its obligations hereunder arising out of or caused by, directly or indirectly, forces beyond its control, including, without limitation, strikes, work stoppages, accidents, acts of war or terrorism, civil or military disturbances, pandemics, nuclear or natural catastrophes or acts of God, and interruptions, loss, or malfunctions of utilities, communications or computer (software and hardware) services; it being understood that the NTA shall use reasonable efforts which are consistent with accepted practices in the education industry to resume performance as soon as practicable under the circumstances.


Code of Conduct:  

The NTA works to foster a learning environment that is open and accepting of diverse opinions, experiences, and beliefs. We value the exchange of ideas and knowledge and are committed to ensuring the classroom is a safe space for all students to contribute and participate. Whether engaging in online classroom discussions, conference calls, or the in-person workshop, the NTA requires that all students behave professionally, respectfully, and constructively in all interactions. Any student who disrupts the learning environment or creates an unsafe atmosphere physically or emotionally for other students will first be spoken to by the instructor. If the behavior continues, additional action will be taken by the NTA to preserve the positive learning experience of the class, which could result in an NTA decision to remove a student from class. Students must refrain from sharing any Zoom recordings from their class with any party, including students in other classrooms, friends, family members, or other organizations to protect the privacy of other students involved in the class calls. Students must also keep any personal information shared by peers in the classroom confidential. 


ADA Policy:  

The Nutritional Therapy Association is committed to serving all students and will provide reasonable accommodation to students with disabilities in accordance with our ADA Policy. Students must request accommodations and provide the necessary documentation 6 weeks prior to the start of class. For full policy details, please visit www.NutritionalTherapy.com.
