Human Nutrition 111
Further expand the knowledge gathered in Nutrition 1 and 11
Emphasis in this course is placed on understanding the body, the food we eat and its affects, our mental, emotional health (state of mind), and physical health.
This course along with the previous 2 (Human Nutrition1 nd Human Nutrition 11) provides the students with a very sound grounding in this field. It also provides the student with very relevant information that can be used towards further education and a profession in this field.
Great for those working in care-giving or children's centres too - ask us about the Proficiency Award in Human Nutrition if you complete all three courses plus and industry project.
What this Course Covers
There are eight lessons in this course, each requiring about 12 hours work by the student.
The content of each lesson is outlined below:
1. Nutrient Imbalance and Disease (Food Related Problems)
2. Dental Problems
3. Fibre and Bowel Diseases
4. Different Ways of Eating
5. Food Toxicity: Sensitivity
6. Food Toxicity: Poisoning
7. Detoxification/Body Cleansing
8. Consulting/ Giving Advice
A PBL task is also included in this course and must be completed prior to examination or to obtain a letter of completion if exam is not sat.
Study when, where and however much you want. For most students, the course can be completed with a total of around 100 hours of study; and a commitment close to that may be needed to achieve desired learning outcomes.
The following books, available through this web site are relevant supplementary reading for this course
- Human Nutrition
- Therapeutic Nutrition
Self Assessment Tests are presented throughout the course. These are essentially an automated quiz. When you undertake a "SAT" or "Self Assessment Test", you will be able to see what you got correct, and what was incorrect; and in that way, you can identify your weaknesses.
Eight Assignments are given at the end of each lesson. You should complete this assignment, paying careful attention to follow what is asked of you. It can be just as important to learn to work to specification, as it is to learn about the topic you are studying. Graduates who develop a habit of working to specification in food and nutrition, will impress employers, and will be more efficient when self employed.
A Final Exam is offered upon satisfactory completion of all assignments. This is optional. If you choose to apply for and do this exam, you will have the possibility of obtaining a "formal credit" or "Pass Certification" for this course. A fee applies. The exam may be sat under prearranged conditions anywhere in the world. This college will award you a formal transcript, upon successful completion of the exam, as proof of your results.
Recognition and Ethics
This college is a member of the ACS Affiliates Network; a group of colleges from several countries, affiliated with each other through ACS Distance Education.. Courses are developed with input from all of these colleges, aspiring to reflect internationally accepted standards and needs.
A strict "No Plagiarism" and "No fraud" policy exists. Assignments are checked for plagiarism, and assignments will not be deemed to have been completed, if work is not your own original creation, and is found to have been copied from elsewhere. If the person doing the course is discovered to be different to the name enrolled, the enrolment and any results will be recorded as invalid and any fees paid will be forfeited.
A full refund less expenses (up to 15% of fees applied) is provided to anyone wishing to withdraw from a course, within 2 weeks of enrolment. This does not apply after the first assignment has been submitted and marked; or after the two weeks has expired.
WHAT IS DIFFERENT ABOUT THIS INSTITUTION?
We believe that we have an ethical responsibility to make good use of the fees you pay and the time you invest into an education through our college. To this end, our first priority is always your learning. This comes before issues such as formal accreditations, speculative marketing and bureaucratic processes which all too often add considerable costs to the running of colleges, and take resources away from the provision of more valuable services to the student.
This college focuses on facilitating your learning and support to optimise that learning. We recognise that learning is all about improving knowledge and skills in your long term memory. While some colleges may focus on getting you to pass exams, by committing knowledge to short term memory; we understand that such an approach is not true education, and does little to improve your long term career or business prospects.
How Could Doing This Course Help You?
This is the third course in a series of courses on human nutrition that this school offers - Human Nutrition 1, 11 and 111 can be combined to give the graduate a qualification in this field (Proficiency Award). You could also use this award as credits towards further study.
