Tier 2 Advanced Holistic Nutritionist Diploma Program

The NutraPhoria School of Holistic Nutrition is unique in that we offer two distinct, yet complementary levels of education in the field of holistic nutrition:

Tier 1 Training:  Holistic Nutrition & Health Coach Program

Tier 2 Training:  Advanced Holistic Nutritionist Program

The Holistic Nutritionist program builds on what you learn in the level one training, diving deeper into advanced subjects.  The prerequisite for Tier 2 is Tier 1.  Both programs are recognized globally allowing you to obtain professional membership and a registered designation.  More details about this can be found further down the page.

Many of our students find that what they learn in the Holistic Nutrition & Health Coach Certification (Tier 1) is perfect for what they want to do as a practitioner and they go on to start a successful business or begin working for an employer.

Others decide to go even further in their education to be able to work with more complex cases, a wider range of clients, and to obtain a deeper knowledge.   Tier 2 can be completed after Tier 1 and while working as a Holistic Nutrition & Health Coach.   It is an effective structure that students absolutely love because it allows you to gain confidence and hands-on experience while continuing your schooling.

You can choose to enrol in both tiers at the same time which saves you money on tuition overall and gives you a full two years to complete both programs (average completion time falls around 18 months).  Or, you can enrol in tier 1 first and tier 2 later down the road after you have completed the first program.  What route you choose should reflect what your overall aspirations are as a practitioner, the level of skill and knowledge you want, and the complexity of client issues you want to be able to work with.
