Nutrition Certification

What sort of certification do you need to become a nutritionist? I graduated from a private 4 year college last year with degrees in Biology/Microbiology - and I am thinking of doing nutrition for a living as I am an advocate of health and nutrition as well as physical fitness.

What is the most widely accepted cert? Is a BA needed in nutrition?

Well it would be a BS, I know for a dietician it’s quite extensive, I think they’re the same thing.

Depending where you’re studying, in Canada, a BA is fine, as long as you meet the science requirements. Make sure the institution you plan to attend is an accredited institution that is recognized by the Detetics Association of your COuntry.
