NASM, Ace, ISSA and other basic nutrition courses seems to be very basic. I need to find a course that is more advanced for someone who already is very experienced helping clients with nutrition. I don’t have a basic nutrition cert. but I don’t want to be wasting my time paying for, and studying things I already know. Any suggestions on how to approach this situation?
There are a myriad of nutrition education courses being offered on-line and in residence. I don’t know exactly what you mean by “more advanced.” Are you referring to the biochemistries of protein and amino acid metabolism? Routes of absorption and assimilation of various nutrients and co-factors? You’re asking a whole lot of questions all wrapped up in one.
I’d suggest searches on “nutrition education” and “advanced nutrition education” to see what’s available and what may best fit your needs.
