This online Short Course describes the performance outcomes, skills and knowledge required to identify when the provision of nutritional advice is beyond the scope of practice of a personal trainer. It requires the ability to recognise the dangers of providing nutrition advice in a fitness setting and when a client requires referral to an Accredited Practising Dietitian, Accredited Sports Dietitian or General Practitioner. The course covers recognition of appropriate information sources to apply to the provision of food advice, and when the provision of such advice is unethical and beyond the scope of practice.
The fee for this short course will be $45.00.
