BENEFITS OF COURSE MENTORING
Course Mentors have an opportunity to review the curriculum in the NTA’s online learning platform, brush up skills through participation in the workshop weekends, and provide support to students as they go through their program. Whilst Course Mentoring is a volunteer position, all accepted CM applicants are in fact being 'paid' in terms of gaining full access to the curriculum (and any updated content, a full $8,800 value) as well as the following benefits:
• 24 CEUs for NTP CMs
• 1 Year Free NTA Graduate Membership ($130 value)
• 1 Year Free Subscription to Nutri-Q ($240 value)
To receive full benefits, Course Mentor's must attend all workshops. See dates and class workshop locations here. The Lead Instructor for the class selects Course Mentors and will notify each Course Mentor before the course start date. For application deadlines, please review the Course Mentor application.
