Once students complete the course requirements and graduate with their IOPN Diploma in Sports Nutrition, they can obtain insurance* to practice as a Sports Nutritionist.
Eligible UK based graduates are also strongly encouraged to apply for graduate registration with the UK Sport and exercise Nutrition Register (see Pathways to SENr registration PDF download) and/or the Association for Nutrition (AfN). Both SENr and AfN offer registrants practitioner insurance products.
NOTE: obtaining insurance to practice as a performance nutritionist may be limited to certain countries worldwide, and local laws that may restrict the practice of sports nutrition to licensed professionals (e.g. some states in the US). In all cases you will be expected to adhere to a relevant scope of practice and remain evidence-based at all times.
