DISCLAIMER: Since nutrition and fitness go hand-in-hand, this course is intended to equip a fitness leader with a strong working knowledge of good nutrition in order to ACCURATELY ANSWER THE GENERAL QUESTIONS of their clientele. Although the course contains in-depth information, it is NOT intended to prepare a candidate for any type of role as an individual dietary consultant. The term specialist indicates a highly specialized type of training and a person who has studied nutrition in great detail. However, that person is NOT QUALIFIED to assemble dietary programs and act in the capacity of a dietician, which requires additional training, and licensing. Any use of this certification in that capacity or advertising as a dietician is unethical and in most states illegal. This course provides extensive credible information to work in facilities that provide fitness and nutrition information.
