  1. nutrition diploma


    I really enjoyed this course. It appeared simple and was easy to complete but the information was condensed and useful. The areas covered were important to help different groups of people, and I believe that most of the information was correct and up to date.

  2. Highly Recommended!


    Never knew diet & nutrition had so many aspects! I think this course covers almost everything on these topics. 10/10!

  3. Easy explanation of modules. Recommended!


    I had no prior knowledge of nutrition. But the instructor made it so easy! Great course.

  4. I've got my ABC endorsed Certificate! Thanks, xxx


    The course has great material, but it’s too long.

  12. Great until the end


    I enjoyed the course itself, but have been unable to download the recommended reading material and therefore have been unable to complete the course. I have tried every which way and also had other people trying to download this information, but no luck. Waiting to hopefully hear from someone and enable me to get this downloaded onto my laptop.
