SENr (Sport and Exercise Nutrition Register):
The course content has been endorsed for CPD by the British Dietetic Association’s Sport and Exercise Nutrition Register, which is current up to the 25/04/2023. SENr endorsement applies only to the educational content of the learning activity. Completion of the diploma will not lead to automatic qualification or graduate registration onto the SENR register, but can be used as suitable evidence of learning to support a relevant application for SENr registration in which an IOPN Diploma graduate will be able to demonstrate their ability to meet many of the professional competencies outlined in the SENr Competency Framework for those that are eligible to apply. (Typically those with undergraduate and/or postgraduate degrees in nutrition, dietetics, or sport and exercise science).
AfN (Association for Nutrition):
The course content has been endorsed under the AfN CPD endorsement scheme, which is current up to 02/02/2024. This means that it is considered to be appropriate CPD activity to further the professional knowledge and learning of AfN registrants, and as suitable evidence of learning to support a portfolio application for UKVRN registration as a sport and exercise nutrition specialist in those that are eligible to apply. (Typically those with undergraduate and/or postgraduate degrees in nutrition, dietetics, or sport and exercise science).
SDA (Sports Dietitians Australia):
The course has been endorsed for CDP (50 Professional Development Points) to support suitably qualified sports dietitians toward accredited and advanced Sport Dietitian status.
