Education & Training - RNT Update
RNT Update: Home Study Modules for an Advanced Diploma
Since its inception the Register of Nutritional Therapists determined
to offer its self-taught members the chance to achieve and demonstrate
a high standard of educational qualification.
We developed the RNT Update, a distance-learning programme, which
provides superb study and research material. It also provides Final
Assessment Papers to complete at home. This enables practitioners
to study in their own time and prove their skills at an Advanced level.
Australian Degree based on the RNT Update
With the success of the RNT Update, we were contacted by an Australian
university, to use our material, and form a Bachelor of Science Degree
in Nutritional Medicine.
Development of the:
Bachelor of Science Degree
FAST TRACK Bachelor Conversion Course
soon followed that we could offer credits towards the Bachelor Degree,
for Existing Practitioners' course-work, and this became the Bachelor
Conversion Course (FAST TRACK)
can then move on to take a Masters Degree or Ph.D.
We soon discovered the great need for good foundation courses. The
RNT Update requires a good level of previous knowledge and we lacked
access to a suitable foundation course to get potential therapists
The Australian College of Natural Medicine (ACNM) offered a Diploma
course that would double up as a Foundation Course and constitute
half of the Degree.
Other UK Foundation Courses were then being developed and we can
now direct potential students to a variety of choices.
