Professional Organisations and Nutritionist Registers
Association for Nutrition The Association for Nutrition is a professional body that holds the UK Voluntary Register of Nutritionists (UKVRN), a competency-based register of Nutritionists. It sets proficiency and competence criteria, promotes continuing professional development, and accredits university undergraduate and postgraduate courses.
Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council Previously the Nutritional Therapy Council held this register, until it was transferred to the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council. The CNHC ‘quality mark’ is supported by the Department of Health.
Federation of Nutritional Therapy Practitioners The FNTP provide information on education providers, if you want to train as a Nutritional Therapist or are already a qualified practitioner looking to extend your training via Continuing Professional Development (CPD) courses.
