Flexible Learning Options
Beck Health & Nutrition provides flexible study options so you can make the most of your nutrition course study experience. Each nutrition course is designed to be completed in approximately 30-40 hours of study (self-paced over six months). This includes time for reading course materials and completing all learning activities and your course assessment. You are welcome to complete your studies as quickly as you wish. Alternatively, if you require more time than six months to complete your studies you are welcome to apply for extra time (no financial or academic penalty will apply for extensions of time).
Academic Study Support
Beck Health & Nutrition is committed to providing the best-possible assistance to our students. Beck Health & Nutrition specialises in nutrition education only, so you can be sure that all course content and academic support is from accredited and experienced nutrition professionals at the forefront of nutrition education. We are on hand to assist you no matter what your question is. We encourage students to call, email or contact us online for assistance. All questions are handled confidentially.
In addition to our large number of Australian domestic students, our courses continue to attract many international students. Our flexible, distance education format makes studying nutrition easy – anywhere in the world. Remember that assistance is only ever a phone call or email away. Please note that an international postage and handling fee of AU $50.00 per course applies ($75 for the Advanced Certificate of Nutrition & Health) and will be charged automatically at time of enrolment.
Course Assessments (Exams)
Each course has one assessment in order to complete your studies. All assessments are in an un-timed, open-book format designed to encourage you to use your newly acquired skills and knowledge via a combination of multiple choice, short answer and case study questions. Remember that professional nutritionists from Beck Health & Nutrition are available via email, online or telephone to assist with any questions and to guide you through any concerns you may have. All questions are handled confidentially. Unlike many other course providers, course assessment/exam fees are included in your course fees.
What happens if I fail?
Given that each course assessment is open-book and un-timed, and that you are encouraged to contact us with questions, it is only very rare that a learner actually fails to reach the prescribed 60% course assessment pass mark. If this does happen, we will contact you and you will be offered the opportunity to complete a supplementary assessment. A $50 fee applies.

Selected nutrition courses will also include access to student-only online video tutorials to assist your learning. Access codes for your online classroom will be emailed to you soon after enrolment.

All Beck Health & Nutrition courses are approved and accredited by the International Institute of Complementary Therapists. This accreditation provides automatic eligibility to access professional indemnity insurance for nutritional advice, health coaching, nutrition and health coaching, menu planning and dietary advice. To find out more about this accreditation and insurance please read our guide “studying to be a health and nutrition coach”.
Beck Health & Nutrition courses provide an excellent introduction into the science of nutrition and are commonly undertaken by individuals who are deciding whether to study nutrition at a professional level however the short-course nature of these programs mean that they will not independently accredit you as a nutritionist. Each of our courses are approved for Continuing Practitioner Education (CE) points for ongoing registration (for nutritionists, naturopaths, massage therapists etc). Our Certificate of Nutrition and Diet course is also accredited by Fitness Australia. These accreditation arrangements ensure that once you have completed the course your qualification can be used to apply for advanced standing (exemptions on other courses), recognition of prior learning (RPL) or continued professional memberships.
Beck Health & Nutrition’s Certificate of Nutrition & Diet course is accredited for 15 CEC points from Fitness Australia for Registered Exercise Professionals. Our Certificate of Nutrition for Stress, Anxiety and Depression course is also currently in application with Fitness Australia for CEC points.
Do I need online access to complete these courses? No. Beck Health & Nutrition is committed to providing courses in the most convenient and user-friendly format. In line with this all course materials are presented in a high-quality printed and bound course pack so you can study at any time without having to sit at a computer for hours or print out endless information.
Our online study centre contains a great selection of health and nutrition news, healthy living tips, links, research files, online learning video tutorials (selected courses only), optional readings and learning activities. Information on the website is a great ‘optional extra’ for those students wishing to do further reading or study either during, or after completion their courses.
