Are you providing effective & appropriate nutrition advice to your clients?
There's currently an expectation amongst consumers for fitness services to be coupled with nutrition advice, particularly with regards to weight management and dietary supplementation. This has created a need for Registered Exercise Professionals (REPs) to find the balance between providing an appropriate level of nutrition advice to the client, without providing information beyond their scope of practice. Throughout the seminar you’ll hear from a variety of experts including, fitness business owners, exercise professionals and dietitians.
With this in mind, we've developed an online course, Effective & Appropriate Nutrition Advice (Guidance for Registered Exercise Professionals), in collaboration with Dietitians Association of Australia and Sports Dietitians Australia.
The course can be completed at any time, on any device via our online learning platform, iLearn, and is approved for 2 CECs.
Who should participate?
This seminar is designed to inform exercise professionals of the opportunities that exist when providing nutrition advice. Additionally, this provides business managers and industry educators the opportunity to clearly understand the role of REPs and the value of working collaboratively with dietitians in the fitness industry.
In this course you'll learn:
- The importance of adhering to nationally endorsed nutritional standards and guidelines, such as the Australian Dietary Guidelines
- When and how to refer clients to appropriate allied health professionals
- The benefits of working in collaboration with allied health professionals.
