This advanced certification path takes your LCHF coaching to the next level!
Now more than ever, the need for nutrition coaches, specialised in advanced low carbohydrate nutrition, is crucial. For medical nutritional therapy to be effective, a multidisciplinary approach is essential, weaving together expertise from medical/allied health practitioners and health coaches/mentors.
The Nutrition Network Coach Practitioner Certification Path is designed to blend together health coaching and LCHF mentoring, creating expertly trained, advanced LCHF Coach Practitioners. As a Certified Nutrition Network Coach Practitioner, you will have obtained advanced skills to work confidently with other healthcare professionals or independently, helping clients/ patients to effectively implement LCHF nutrition as a lifestyle.
The certification path is an intense 14-16 week training program consisting of live weekly group trainings with an expert lecture panel, rigorous live trainings of LCHF science and coaching skills, practical applications, written and oral assessments, logged coaching sessions, mentorships, access to a private membership forum with direct access to your lecturers and fellow coach practitioners, as well as a complete guide on how to establish your coaching practice.
The 14-16 week training is set at $3800 and participants will be selected by application only after completing this qualifying criteria.
Weekly work will be assessed based on your participation and engagement during the live session as well as engagement on the Community Platform. Note that some weekly work will have to be submitted before the Live session. This will be communicated to you clearly on the Community Platform.
The Community Platform will serve as your exclusive learning portal for this certification. Here you will have access to your lecturers and fellow students and will be where you gain access to your lecture resources, pre-reading material, recordings of the live sessions, and your ‘weekly work’, which consists of questions posted on the Community Platform. You will need to answer these weekly work assessment questions within the week – all of these elements will make up part of your final assessment score. Your personalized access to the Community platform will be sent to you. Your requirements for each week will be clearly explained in the Community Platform Classroom.
Live Group Meetings
As per your Curriculum Calendar, each week you will be required to meet for the live group meetings held on Zoom. Any pre-reading/viewing required prior to the meeting will be indicated on the Platform. The lecturer will lead and direct the group discussion and will encourage individual participation. Participation in these meetings will be analysed based on your level of engagement, delivery of relevant points and opinions, professionalism, and ability to grasp and understand the topics discussed.
For those who are unable to attend the live session, a pre-recording will be available on the Community Platform. As mentioned, you will be assessed on your engagement during the live discussion. If your attendance for a particular session is not possible, you would be required to complete a form listing your key takeaways from the session, to be submitted on the platform within 24 hours of the pre-recording upload. The “Missed Presentation Review Form” will be located in your Program Resources space on the Community Platform.

“The Nutrition Network was originally created to train medical professionals to integrate TCR into their practice in a way that supported evidence-based treatment. What we have found in our first years is the essential link of a coach/educator/advisor to support medical intervention. What this person is and does is essential to long-term success for a patient with any lifestyle disease. We are not only treating illnesses medically, we are treating the person, and their ability to cope and adapt to new approaches. Behavioral change is not easy. Our training has experts in the areas of addiction, and dietary and lifestyle transformation at its core. What our advisors and certified coaches will do on a deeper level is take people on a journey of transformation back to health.” says Jayne Bullen, Managing Director of Nutrition Network.
