Important update for people looking into the ISSN-SNS in Australia and New Zealand.
There has been quite a high failure rate of this exam recently outside of our program.
For those of you who are looking at taking the exam without doing our program (we caution that as you will not be an Accredited Sports Nutritionist in Australia or NZ, nor have proper insurance scope).
If you are being told to get the essentials textbook and study for it, this is completely incorrect, and this information has not been provided by a current member of the ISSN advisory board.
The text you actually need is: Sports Nutrition Performance Enhancing Supplements
You also need to:
- Study and know extremely well all 10 current position stands
- Study and read/familiarise yourself with all of the articles published in the journal for the last 2 years.
This is providing you have a sound notion of applied exercise physiology and basic sports nutrition – if you don’t have this then make sure you enrol in our next intake!
