Frequently Asked Questions

A: No, there is not, just a positive attitude and passion for health, nutrition and fitness. The program is self-paced,so you can start anytime!

We don’t like to provide students a set number of hours they should allocate each week to their study to see their course completed, as it does differ greatly from student to student depending on their experience and academic ability. Instead, we’ve developed study guides that students can follow to keep them on track to complete the course within 6 or 12-month timeframes. These have been developed by using a guideline of completing 1-2 units per month.

– With one elective stream, there are 11 units in total

– With two elective streams, there are 14 units in total.

So, 1-2 units per month keeps the student on track to complete the course within the 12-month timeframe. The amount of hours required by the student to complete the 1-2 units per month is essentially dependent on the individual. 

We are here to support students with fast assessment marking and Live Virtual Support.

Designed by the Nutrition Council Australia, the 11046NAT – Certificate IV in Nutrition aims to bridge the training gap in the Australian nutrition landscape below the university level. Nine of the fourteen units within this course focus on areas previously unavailable to students without attending university. These exclusive units are not found in any other course in Australia. Unrelated units that do not pertain to nutrition or client interactions have been eliminated by concentrating solely on nutrition knowledge and skills. This focused approach ensures a comprehensive nutrition education, enabling students to work with diverse clients with varying goals, such as promoting healthier food relationships, achieving body composition targets, or improving athletic performance.

Students should carefully examine the course unit breakdown to gain a clear understanding of the well-rounded nutrition education offered by VFA.
