The Bauman Business Institute (BBI) in the Nutrition Consultant Training Program is a comprehensive business training curriculum that prepares students to have successful careers in their own nutrition businesses or as employees. The business curriculum is self-paced, flexible, and delivered primarily online and via mentoring sessions so that classroom time can be dedicated to learning the fundamentals of nutrition. Students will progress through the business curriculum concurrently with their nutrition training, allowing them the full length of the program to develop their career plans.

Students will have access to an online resource library that includes handouts, worksheets, and resources to use with clients upon graduation.
