Have this badge displayed on your profile in our provider list. Join one of our Professional Communities and complete the Approved Training to get Certified. The different options for Certification Training are described below.
Once certified, you will be required to submit a certificate for CME credits from one of our conferences every 2 years to show you are keeping up to date with the science.
Certification training for this category of Professionals is provided by the Nutrition Network (NN) which is a spin-off from The Noakes Foundation. It is accredited by the CPD Standards Office in London and provides Internationally Accepted CME credits for the course.
Nutritionists, Dietitians & Keto/Health Coaches
For this category of providers there are a few options. The primary distinction is between a regular nutritionist or one who focuses on sports nutrition. If your primary focus is sports nutrition then certification is available through the National Association of Sports Nutrition (NASN). If you are a registered dietitian or nutritionist or you are a health coach with some certification then the training is available through the Nutrition Network (NN). CEUs are available for both courses here too.
We are currently working with the NN to create a course for Keto/Health Coaches with no previous certification or training
Fitness & Exercise Specialists
Any provider in this category may list their details, but for certification, we focus on a specific system of Slow, Maximum Resistance Training (SMaRT). It has become clear that executing High Resistance Training in a very specific manner is not only very safe and effective but also activates a lot of the same metabolic pathways as the ketogenic diet and forms an awesome adjunct to this lifestyle. The SMaRT system was developed by Dr. Ben Bocchicchio and we have introduced a course for personal trainers to learn this approach. It is presented underthe guidance of Dr. Ben by the National Association of Sports Nutrition (NASN).
