What is Precision Nutrition?

  • Precision Nutrition, founded by John Berardi, PhD and Phil Caravaggio; is the world's largest online nutrition coaching and certification company.

  • Since 2003, Precision Nutrition has been actively helping fitness and health professionals to become exclusive coaches.

  • It highlights the various concepts and enhances a focused understanding of nutrition with research-based reports and studies.

  • This allows practitioners to learn, examine, experience, practice, coach and apply the knowledge of nutrition as well as behavioral changes in real life scenarios that will provide life changing results not only for yourself but for other people who wants to seek for advice too. 

Core Nutrition Principles for Health, Performance, and Wellbeing (and How To Coach Them)

Imagine if you had all the nutrition, coaching, and change psychology research… all the scientific concepts… all the experience… all the practical “how-to” stuff… all in one place.

If you had a trusted source of education… a proven system… and real-life advice to help guide your professional development.

If it came in a clear, understandable, self-paced learning format that suited your schedule.

And if, at the end of the process, you had a system (like ProCoach) to deliver the habit-based nutrition coaching you just learned, so you can grow a practice while working less and getting better results.

That’s what The Precision Nutrition Level 1 Certification is here for.

In addition to learning how nutrition really works, you’ll understand how people think and act, and you’ll be able to turn that into a thriving coaching practice.

This means you’ll get better results, attract more clients and patients, keep them for longer, and make more money than you thought possible.


Whether you’re:

  • just starting out in the field of health, fitness, or wellness;

  • an established professional in the middle of your career;

  • passionate about health and considering a career change;

  • working with people one-on-one or in a group setting; or

  • wanting to deepen your knowledge of nutrition…… you can become Precision Nutrition Certified.

" You are what you eat"

The purpose of this course : 

  • This course will help you dispel common myths and fallacies associated with nutrition.

  • It will prepare you to discuss nutrition with your clients by establishing the knowledge base necessary to make general nutritional recommendations that support healthy eating behaviors in your clients.

  • Along with providing nutritional theory and science, we’ll walk you step-by-step through the actual process that sports nutrition practitioners use to prepare for, evaluate, and make recommendations for clients. Each step is accompanied by the sub-steps, descriptions, tables, and summary charts required to implement that step.

  • You should finish this course with both a better understanding of exercise nutrition and with a complete understanding of the tools used in systematically delivering detailed nutritional recommendations.

  • It is important to note, however, that successful completion of the course examination will not qualify you as a registered dietitian, licensed dietitian, or licensed nutritionist. (Each state has individual rules and regulations about nutrition licensure; check with your particular state to ensure you are following legal protocol.)

  • Nor will this course allow you to provide medical nutrition therapy. Instead, this course will provide you with continuing education in the field of nutrition.

  • It will enhance your credibility and your skill set. And it will help you overcome the biggest limiting factor your clients face every day: poor nutrition.

What is this certification all about?

In the contemporary fields of health, fitness, and wellness, the component of nutrition coaching system is somehow lacking or absent. Most exercise programs are not accompanied by an effective nutrition system which would promote to only mediocre results. Precision Nutrition provides both exercise and nutrition coaching which can bring you significant differences in results.

What are the exams like?

There are 18 short exams with 10 questions each. Questions are either multiple choice or true or false.

The exams are delivered online; they can be accessed whenever you're ready. Also, each exam corresponds with the chapter you just studied, and completing the exam unlocks the next chapter.

For instance, if you read Chapter 1 of the textbook, watch the corresponding video lesson, answer your workbook questions, and review the FAQ, you'll be ready to take the Chapter 1 exam. Once the Chapter 1 exam is completed, you'll instantly see your results and get access to the Chapter 2 materials.

What grade do I need to pass?

At least 75%, which most students easily achieve or surpass.

By the end of the course, you'll have written 18 short, 10-question exams, for a total of 180 questions. Get at least 135 of the questions correct (75%) to earn your Pn1 credentials. We'll send your official certificate immediately after you pass.

What if I don't pass the course?

If you don't earn 135 out of 180 points in the course, you can write a re-do exam at the end of the course. You'll get 5 chances to earn 75% or greater on this exam.
