Course description

About the Level 3 Sports Nutrition Certificate

Food is fuel and our bodies cannot function properly without it. In order to be successful, athletes need to eat strict diets which provide optimum nutrition. However, with so many conflicting ideas about what constitutes a nutritious diet, it’s often hard to know what’s right. This is where a sports dietician or a sports nutritionist comes in.

This distance learning course has been designed to teach students all they need to know about sports nutrition. Learners will study a number of engaging units, which cover topics ranging from the digestive system and weight control to fluid balance and protein supplements. The course should take approximately 110 hours to complete, but we recommend you move at your own pace.

Suitability - Who should attend?

Who should study this course?

This home learning course has been specifically designed for individuals who have an interest in working in sports nutrition. The qualification is also suitable for those who already work in the sports industry and want to develop their knowledge, and those with a general interest in nutrition.

At Stonebridge College, we do not ask our students to have any prior qualifications before enrolling on one of our home study sports nutrition courses. All we ask is that you have an interest in the topic, and that you are willing to engage in independent study.

Outcome / Qualification etc.

What happens after the course?

On successful completion of your online learning course, you will have a broader understanding of sports nutrition. If you want to become a sports dietician, you will need to study a dietetics degree at undergraduate level or undertake a relevant postgraduate qualification.

You do not need a degree to become a sports nutritionist, however many employers will require you to be registered with the Association for Nutrition (AfN). To do this you will need a degree in nutritional science. Other careers in this field include:

  • Personal trainer
  • Gym employee
  • Dietetic assistant
