Who we are
‘Ensuring the sustainable prosperity of the Sports Nutrition Profession.’
The Sports Nutrition Association is the registered governing body responsible for establishing and standardising best practises in Sports Nutrition within the regions of; Australia, New Zealand, USA, Asia, & Canada+ Europe (coming soon). It also provides education and recognised certification for Personal Trainers, Exercise Physiologists, Strength Coaches & Exercise scientists looking to add Sports Supplementation & Nutrition programming to their insured scope of practise
What we do
The education is also for those people interested in studying nutrition, or a potential career in nutrition, but do not want to wait 3+ years and invest tens of thousands of dollars later to find out it isn’t for them. The Provisional accreditation allows people to first study and learn the subject matter, then practise in the space (in a provisional capacity) to ascertain if this is a career for them, and then they are required to enrol into further study (they otherwise would be with another professional body at the entry-level) to become openly accredited. However, by this point, you will be well and truly confident in your decision for this as a career.
The Sports Nutrition Association’s levels of accreditation are outlined below, the certificate enables Provisional Accreditation for 3 years after completing the program, whereby they must enrol in either the Graduate Diploma or another Relevant** Exercise Physiology or Specialist Dietetics program. Members who already hold a degree in this are exempt and receive full accreditation immediately.
The Certificate in Applied Sports Nutrition has been reverse engineered to meet the minimum requirements for practising in Sports Nutrition. It is the combination and synergy of applied Nutrition Physiology and applied Exercise Physiology subjects (as seen above) that forms the foundation on Sports Nutrition. Students that complete this program become eligible to register, insure, and practise as Accredited Sports Nutritionists provisionally while they ascertain through practise and experience in the field if this is the career path for them.
The Sports Nutrition Association is not accredited with any national qualifications framework.
We are a global association formed as a result of no framework existing prior to our inception, and have an advisory board of the top researchers and practitioners in the field who in conjunction with our global underwriting firms review and update the content annually based on the latest research and insurance feedback.
Typically national frameworks and framework accreditation typically conflict from country to country at this point especially in the Applied Sports & Nutrition Sciences with countries and regions only recognising qualifications and programs from within only their own, or maybe if lucky 1-2 other neighbouring countries. By establishing a global standard the Association has solved this problem and allows for recognition of members in every region they are operating in.
