An EIN graduate has exceeded the minimum education requirements set by the governing associations including IONC, CANNP and NANP. An EIN nutritional consultant has specialized in-depth training spanning over 2,000 hours. An EIN graduate is proficient in assessing an individual’s unique biochemical needs and will make recommendations based on what the client actually requires as no one conforms to norms, averages, or standardized "one-size-fits-all" approaches.
The truly successful practitioner must have training that combines scientific principles with the comprehensive skills of individual assessment beyond the knowledge of nutritional concepts and theories. Upon completion of the Practitioner Program, each graduate will earn their Diploma in Holistic Nutrition which qualifies them for the designation NNCP, RNT, RNCP and/or ROHP through the recognized associations.
