The Diploma requires completion of a nutrition unit ‘HLTNUT610B – Provide basic dietary advice’. Currently, we are in the planning stages to create our own nutrition course. So in the interim, students will need to complete this unit with an external provider.
It is essential that students complete a course that provides them with a certificate of attainment in the above unit.
We have determined that the Australian Institute of Applied Sciences offers a subject called Nutrition 1, which covers this unit. There are no pre-requisites and it can be completed online and as a stand-alone subject.
Their website does not have direct information about this stand-alone subject. Please contact them by phone (1300 880 933) or fill in their online enquiry form advising that you want to study the ‘Nutrition 1’ subject to obtain the unit ‘HLTNUT610B – Provide basic dietary advice’.
Please advise us if you run into any problems.
Once completed, you will need to provide a copy of your statement of attainment to us as evidence of your competency in this nutrition unit.
