A nutrition coach has demonstrated the basic knowledge of science-backed nutrition concepts and the ability to educate and motivate clients toward healthier eating patterns. NETA’s Nutrition Coach Specialty Certification workshop will include an in-depth look at the essential nutrients and how they are utilized, a review of the Dietary Guidelines for Americans, an overview of dietary supplements, and tips for influencing participants toward healthier eating habits, to include motivational interviewing strategies, all while staying within scope of practice. Upon completion of the workshop and online exam, participants will earn the NETA Specialty Certification of a Nutrition Coach.
While the title of nutrition coach is an excellent enhancement to a health and fitness professional’s ability to address nutrition-related behavior change, it is important to understand the regulations set in place in the state of practice.
Beyond formal education and credentials, it is essential that a nutrition coach has a positive attitude and is able to inspire clients through motivational interviewing strategies and working with them to set achievable goals.Learn More
