There is typically some confusion in the difference between a Nutrition Advisor and a Dietitian. While both aim to assist individuals in achieving optimal health through diet, a Dietitian has additional qualifications that allow them to provide medical nutritional therapy. A Nutrition Advisor is responsible for working with their clients to create meaningful change in their lifestyle with nutritional advice and support. This includes working one-on-one with clients to provide services such as diet and exercise plans, progress tracking and implementing a course of action or referring them to medical health professionals when necessary.
Follow your passion for health and fitness with a career as a Nutrition Coach. A Nutrition Coach’s role focuses on helping their clients build practices and make changes to their diet to optimise their health. There are many reasons why an individual would seek help from a Nutrition Coach; they might have a fitness or performance goal they’re working towards, or simply a desire to improve their quality of life and prevent diet-related disease. As a Nutrition Coach, you’ll have a solid understanding of nutrition science and how to tailor a program to meet an individual’s specific needs, as well as being able to successfully motivate them to stay on track.

I spoke with Tamara, who was wonderful. She gave me all the information about the course and kept in touch during the enrolment process. The AIPT team are always available to help you and answer any questions you may have.
They have an excellent range of courses on offer, as well as superb customer service that made me feel welcomed and supported throughout my studies.
Having the opportunity to study my theory online and at my own pace allowed me the freedom to continue working my full-time job. The face-to-face branch of the studies was an amazing experience to be able to work with my instructor, who had many years of experience in the industry.
AIPT supported me from the moment I joined. Even through Covid times, they carried on and were always there for me if I needed anything. AIPT customer service is a real credit to them; they are amazing.
Studying with AIPT allowed me to study while working 5 days a week and start a university degree. They made this possible by allowing flexibility throughout my study while still ensuring I received the highest possible education throughout the course. The range of payment plans was also a significant factor for me.
