Natural Nutrition Program - Student Enrolment Contract - Distance Education


Distance Education - A Three Year Part Time Program



At CSNN, we believe that the most important attributes for learning are maturity, interest and dedication. While your previous studies may provide you with supporting information, in our experience they are not the only criteria defining a successful nutritionist. To obtain your diploma in natural nutrition, you must maintain a grade average of 80%. That achievement is, in our view, the mark of a promising professional practitioner. Applicants must have a high school diploma or be 19 years of age or older.
