Course Outline

The Certificate of Human Nutrition course takes you through the latest evidenced-based information about essential nutrition knowledge. It covers defining a ‘good diet’, a review of global dietary guidelines, all you need to know about carbohydrates and sugars, the latest on dietary fats (with special coverage of cholesterol and saturated fats), how protein functions, and a special look at vegetarian and vegan diets. You’ll also look into micronutrients (vitamins and minerals), water balance and hydration. Plus special topics such as early nutrition (including a look at food allergies), pregnancy nutrition, sports nutrition, weight loss nutrition, nutrition of older adults, food safety and a chapter on dietary assessment (based on a non-diet approach). You’re not likely to find a course as comprehensive, with the same options as this one for the same price. If you’re toying with the idea of a career in nutrition you might want to consider ‘testing the water’ first to see if you want to pursue a career in nutrition.
