Frequently Asked Questions

The time it takes to train to become an online nutritionist can vary from a few months to several years.  It depends entirely on which area of the profession you intend to work in, the types of services you intend to provide and the intensiveness of the course you choose.  However, a high-level diploma course comes highly recommended as the absolute minimum.

You can study for a nutrition certificate or diploma online in your spare time. It is not necessary to study for a formal degree or attend a classroom-based course of any kind to get a nutrition certificate.  A wide variety of beginner, intermediate and advanced-level courses can be taken from home, with no time restrictions or fixed study schedules.

While nutritionists and dieticians tend to provide a fairly similar range of services, there are differences between the two.  Primarily, dieticians are formally recognised health professionals, regulated and protected by law. No formal qualifications are required to become a nutritionist, but qualifications and certification are mandatory to work as a registered dietitian.
