Nutrition Essentials for Fitness Course - Nationwide

Discover the perfect recipe for your career in nutrition 

Developing a healthy and sustainable diet starts with education. Our course will provide you with the knowledge that you need to coach individuals along their nutrition journeys.

Expect to boost your knowledge on nutritional science and develop skills that will allow you to interpret and relay nutrition information with confidence.

Study at your own pace with modules that cover everything from energy balance and macronutrients, to dietary assessments, reading food labels, skills for effective nutrition coaching, behaviour change, and much more.

Why take an online nutrition course?

This course has been developed with our nutrition philosophy at its heart:

food first

We'll keep it simple and start with the basics. We help you translate complex scientific theory into practical application.


We'll provide evidence based knowledge that will help you and your clients make informed decisions.

lifelong changes

We'll guide you towards helping others make healthy choices easy and enjoyable.

Entry requirements For this course, there’s no pre-requisite secret sauce to apply. If you’re interested in nutrition or have a background in fitness, leisure and health, you’re in!

How will the course be assessed? At the end of each module and at the end of the course there will be multiple-choice question quizzes, where you will be required to answer 75% correctly to pass. You'll have three attempts to pass each one but we’ll give you as much time as you need and you’ll also be able to look back at your notes during the exam. Your very own nutrition tutor will also be on hand to help guide you through.

Upon successful completion of the course and assessments you will be awarded the AfN Certificate in Advanced Nutrition Essentials for Fitness & Leisure.
