Here's what our grads have to say

“I took this course right after graduating as an NTP, and it really provided a lot of practical help and guidelines in starting your own business. I really appreciate the support of this community. If you think you're lost or confused about how to make your next step, I would highly recommend that you spend some time to take this course!”

- Yi-ting Chen, NTP

"Because of the niche-focused messaging I infused into my website after taking the CDC course, I was located online by a naturopathic doctor who expressed interest in working with me. This opportunity would likely never have come up for me if it weren't for the CDC, so I remain an enthusiastic proponent of the course!"

- Kristen Cornett, NTP

Frequently asked questions

How is this different from the business basics module in the NTP program? 

While we present business basics in the NTP curriculum, the primary focus is on foundational nutrition knowledge, not business. This course presents business lessons from experienced practitioners to help you launch and expand your business.

How is the course delivered?

The course is delivered through our Canvas learning platform, which is accessible from a desktop browser or mobile device. We will provide you with all of the information you need to set up your account once you enroll.

Is there an ideal time to take this course?

Regardless of where you are in your business journey, the Career Development Course will help you grow, expand, and move to the next level.  You can use this information to sign up your first paying clients while you’re still enrolled in the course, multiply your existing client base, or build a waiting list.

What will I receive when I complete this course?

Upon successful completion of the Career Development Course, you will be awarded a certificate of completion. The NTA awards 10 business CEUs and the NANP awards 30 Category 1 CEUs for completing this course. Your certificate of completion serves as appropriate documentation for these CEUs

How much time will I need to set aside to be successful in this course?

You should expect to devote approximately 4 hours per week to the video content, reading, and assignments. There will be daily facilitated discussion groups as well. The more you put into the course, the more you will get out of it!

Is there a payment plan available for this course? If I try the course out and don’t like it, can I get a refund?

Not at this time. Currently, we only offer payment plans for our NTP courses, but are thinking of ways to provide this in the future. Since the course is priced at a significant discount, once the course has been started there is no refund.   

How can I tell if I’m doing well in the course? Is it graded?

The course is not graded but you will get regular feedback on the assignments from your mentor as well as some feedback from the lead instructor.

What If I can't make it to the coaching calls? Will I have access to course materials after the 8 weeks?

All calls will be recorded and you’ll have access to the course materials for one week after the course completes.

Who can I contact if I still have questions?

You are welcome to send an email to nta@nutritionaltherapy.com and someone from our team will get back to you soon.
