About the course

This is a 10 week course, providing 20 hours of BANT and ANP CPD accredited education to help nutrition and health practitioners choose and interpret laboratory assessments with confidence, based on the latest available evidence.

Whether you are a student, a newly qualified practitioner or a seasoned professional, staying up to date, reflecting on assumptions and practice trends is important for clinical confidence.

You have a choice of times/dates to attend to suit your schedule and you are welcome to move between the events accordingly, though you need to attend all 10 dates to receive the CPD certificate.
