Where can I study nutrition in South Africa?

There are a number of great institutions to study nutrition in South Africa. Some of these offer online training while others offer classroom-based instruction. If you want an online course that’s also nationally and internationally accredited then Trifocus Fitness Academy should be your first stop.

Which courses are best for nutrition?

Taking a nutrition certification course can be beneficial for a good number of reasons, ranging from improving personal eating habits to preparing for careers as health and wellness coaches and personal trainers. The best nutrition courses provide comprehensive knowledge and skills about food, health, cooking, and more within a particular context.

The very best online nutrition certification programmes offer a comprehensive curriculum covering all the fundamentals of nutrition science and coaching techniques in an simple-to-digest online format. Most programmes provide everything that you need, including textbooks, online videos, worksheets, and exams as part of the certification process, so you don’t need to pay for any extras.

Why should I get nutrition certification?

There is a plethora of information out there, but not all of it is sound information that the consumer can trust. It can be challenging to differentiate between what is trustworthy information and what is not, and this goes not only for the majority of the population who has no background in nutrition but also for those individuals looking to expand their knowledge in the field.

There may be some people in the industry who look the part and look like they have the credentials to provide sound advice, but the information they’re offering may be incorrect. By acquiring a certification through a reputable organisation, you can rest assured that the information has been vetted and supported by legitimate science.

The information in a nutrition course is compiled in an easy-to-explore manner, so you’re learning from the fundamentals first. Starting from point A and working your way down to point Z can save you a lot of time and money rather than jumping from topic to topic.

How long do nutrition courses take?

A nutrition course takes roughly between three and six months to complete.

Are nutrition courses accredited?

Not all nutrition courses are accredited. However, the ones on offer at Trifocus Fitness Academy are endorsed and accredited by the following bodies: CATHSSETA and NTEC
