About the Certificate Program

Sports Nutrition is the merger of the two worlds of; Applied Exercise Physiology and Applied Nutrition Sciences, and its ongoing development and innovation. The Certificate in applied Sports Nutrition Program Curriculum is designed by the Association (and reviewed and updated annually based on the latest research and insurance feedback) specifically to meet the underwriting standards for what is deemed minimally required subjects and competencies for a Professional to become eligible to register with their regional association body.

What’s the difference

The difference between traditional Nutrition, and Sports Nutrition in Australia is that except for the Sports Nutrition Association’s Certification, all current recognised undergraduate education is directed at the the clinical treatment and prevention of chronic disease. These undergraduate programs  provide the same level of insurance cover for nutrition as a personal trainer (coach around the Australian Dietary Guidelines).
