About the Level 3 Sports Nutrition Certificate

Food is fuel and our bodies cannot function properly without it. In order to be successful, athletes need to eat strict diets which provide optimum nutrition. However, with so many conflicting ideas about what constitutes a nutritious diet, it’s often hard to know what’s right. This is where a sports dietician or a sports nutritionist comes in.

This distance learning course has been designed to teach students all they need to know about sports nutrition. Learners will study a number of engaging units, which cover topics ranging from the digestive system and weight control to fluid balance and protein supplements. The course should take approximately 110 hours to complete, but we recommend you move at your own pace.

Who should study this course?

This home learning course has been specifically designed for individuals who have an interest in working in sports nutrition. The qualification is also suitable for those who already work in the sports industry and want to develop their knowledge, and those with a general interest in nutrition.

At Stonebridge College, we do not ask our students to have any prior qualifications before enrolling on one of our home study sports nutrition courses. All we ask is that you have an interest in the topic, and that you are willing to engage in independent study.

What happens after the course?

On successful completion of your online learning course, you will have a broader understanding of sports nutrition. If you want to become a sports dietician, you will need to study a dietetics degree at undergraduate level or undertake a relevant postgraduate qualification.

You do not need a degree to become a sports nutritionist, however many employers will require you to be registered with the Association for Nutrition (AfN). To do this you will need a degree in nutritional science. Other careers in this field include:

  • Personal trainer
  • Gym employee
  • Dietetic assistant

Requirements for Entry

Professional Membership

On completion of this course you will be eligible to join the following Professional Associations(s):

Anyone who is studying for or has completed a course endorsed by an Ofqual approved awarding body is eligible to join Qualifications Register.  The Qualifications Register (QR) is an independent register that aims to serve both members of the public and those professionals who hold recognised qualifications.

QR's primary aim is to provide transparency to members of the public and employers. The QR is a searchable database that allows them to find a practitioner and view the relevant qualification and endorsements the practitioner holds. The member of the public is then able to make an informed decision in relation to the suitability of the practitioner.  QR also tracks whether practitioners have insurance, again something that is useful for members of the public.  QR can also help professionals gain insurance or find professional indemnity cover.  Click here to find out more.

Members of the public can check an independent source with complete confidence that the practitioner has the qualification(s) they claim to have and that any additional CPD the practitioner has, is verified and quality assured to make sure that the CPD is being done on a regular basis. QR tracks a practitioners endorsed CPD (in unison with our CPD accreditation partner Lifetime Awarding) and other key signals to help members of the public and employers to come to a more informed decision about the professional they intend to use. This is an enormously valuable signal that's increasingly important as business becomes more deregulated and privatised.

For practitioners QR helps you market your skills, endorsements and feedback transparently to a wider audience. It also gives you access to a community to help make you more able to progress and succeed in your field of expertise.  Click here to find out more.
