The DietMaster Pro Certified Weight Management Agent home-study correspondence course will provide the health, fitness and wellness professional the tools, credibility and education that will limit potential liability and greatly attribute to the overall success of a professional weight management program. This program was developed to meet the tremendous demands that health and fitness professionals are faced with daily in this very specialized area of nutrition.
What makes it unique?
Our Certified Weight Management Agent course is the first of its kind. It combines the proper education, consulting process, software tools and meal plan templates exclusively designed by a registered and licensed dietitian and endorsed by a PhD. This combination provides the highest level of credibility and program content outside of a clinical setting.
Are you aware that certain states in our country have regulatory laws that prohibit an individual from providing nutritional counseling, meal plan design and dietary assessment services without being licensed or a Registered Dietitian? It is estimated in the very near future over 50% of the states within our country will enforce these laws. The DietMaster Pro Certified Weight Management Agent course is designed specifically to provide the necessary qualifications for potential exemption to these laws. This certification will qualify individuals to act as an "agent" under a registered or licensed dietitian who has developed the program to meet certain guidelines and criteria required by state laws.
