is the difference between the Nutritional Awareness Certificate

The Longevity Centre is committed to the accessibility of
nutritional education. For this reason, we offer two levels
of study via distance education. Both programs are designed
for those interested in personal health enhancement or for
career growth in the nutrition industry. They differ in
respect to your goals. The Level I program is intended to
provide a foundation in the principles of nutrition and
is suited for those who have a personal dedication or for
those who in the future desire to advance further and obtain
the Level II program. Upon completion of the Nutritional
Awareness Certificate, full credit can then be used towards
the Level II program.
Level II advanced courses are intended for the student who
is pursuing a R.N.C. or R.N.C.P. designation (the professional
designation R.N.C.P. is granted by the International Organization
of Nutritional Consultants (I.O.N.C.)).

No. The Longevity Centre has offered in-class courses in the
past, but in order to offer courses to people living long
distances away the school has changed to the home study approach.
