Does anyone have any experience with the Nutrition Specialist Program through AASDN? Thoughts?
I'm a Certified Personal Trainer of over 8 years and am looking to further my specializations by adding a Nutrition Specialist Certification. I came across the AASDN Nutrition Specialist Program and was very intrigued because they offer access to Dietitians as needed and provide the tools necessary to start one-on-one and small group Nutrition Coaching. So, I was wondering if anyone has any experience with this program and what your thoughts were on it?
I had not heard of it but looked at their website. You are right, it is quite intriguing.
The one thing that came to my mind is that it is up to state level what you can and cannot dispense in terms of advice when it comes to nutrition unless you are a registered dietitian. This is a question I would ask before signing up for it. The program sounds comprehensive; it seems very expensive. I do not like the way the prices are chopped up into little portions with no clear indication of what the whole thing costs.
Just my thoughts .....
