The Program


The Advanced Nutritarian Studies course is self-paced, meaning all required reading is completed by students at their own pace. There are two exams, administered via the internet. Students are required to pass these exams in order to receive a certificate of completion for the course. You do not have to take both tests at the same time, but both tests must be completed with a passing grade of 80% within the 6 month enrollment timeframe.
