Nutrition Certification Series

Join us for an exciting AND practical Nutrition Certification program for Wisconsin doctors.  This course contains the 48 hours of classtime and the testing required to receive your Nutrition Certificate from the Wisconsin Board of Chiropractic.

You are required to complete a 48 hour course consisting of 4 - 12 hour sessions.  At the end of each 12 hours, you must take an exam over the material presented and pass with at least 75% or higher.
