Nutritional Therapist Program

The Nutritional Therapy Practitioner (NTP) Program teaches you how to address nutritional imbalances and deficiencies in the body using nutritional therapy. In this comprehensive program, you will learn specific tools for assessing nutritional deficiencies and addressing them through diet, supplementation, and lifestyle changes, and also learn clinical level nutritional therapy skills. You will also learn the skillset for the NTA’s unique and proprietary hands-on Functional Evaluation and Lingual-Neuro testing techniques for advanced client support. This program is ideal for those wanting to work with clients in person, using clinical assessments and a comprehensive understanding of nutritional therapy to identify nutritional imbalances and deficiencies and make tailored nutritional and lifestyle recommendations.

Upon completion of the NTP program you will graduate with a certification from the Nutritional Therapy Association and the designation of Nutritional Therapy Practitioner. The NTP program is recommended by the National Association of Nutrition Professionals (NANP) and NTP graduates are qualified to sit for the national board exam administered by the Holistic Nutrition Credentialing Board (HNCB).
