Precision Nutrition (online)

Type Online Course
CEU's 1.9

How can you deliver coaching that meets your clients’ every expectation? Include a nutritional component. With an exceptional tool.

Precision Nutrition Level 1 is the best nutrition education currently available on the market. You’ll follow the course entirely online, at your own pace, in English.

What makes it the best? Firstly, it gives you an in-depth understanding of nutrition, and secondly, you’ll learn how to help your clients change their behaviour. It’s the only method that teaches both aspects, with convincing results.

Precision Nutrition (PN) is tried and tested. The methodology is the result of over 15 years of nutrition experience and research. It has been tested by over 100,000 individuals.

Incorporate a nutritional element into your coaching to achieve maximum results and boost your credibility.

  • You have an in-depth knowledge of nutrition: you’re able to give good advice, at the right time.
  • You understand how people think and behave. You can help them change their eating habits and transform their body. And their life.
  • You have the strategies to help and motivate your clients.
  • You get great results with a combination of physical activity/diet: you attract and retain more clients, growing your business in the process.

Online lessons and exams

The Precision Nutrition Level 1 course comprises 3 units divided into 20 chapters. Each chapter of the reference work is accompanied by a webinar, a revision quiz and a list of FAQ. 

After each chapter, you’ll take an online exam consisting of  10 questions.

You can complete the course at your own pace: there’s no deadline. By following the suggested study timeframe of one chapter per week (3 to 5 hours’ work), you could obtain your certification in around 4 months. But you’re free to complete the course faster or slower than this, taking into account your personal situation.
