Level I Metabolic Efficiency Training Specialist Certification

 

Certification Details

The Level I Metabolic Efficiency Training Specialist Certification has been updated and moved entirely to an online format. The certification is a two-month process so ensure you can commit to this time frame before applying for the certification. There is a no refund policy.

Month 1 will include completing the six online modules and accompanying quizzes. There will be two group calls during this time facilitated by your instructor. Additionally, each participant will be invited to join the private Facebook page that will be used for interaction throughout the certification.

Education Modules

  • Module 1: Introduction and background
  • Module 2: Cognitive assessment/coaching
  • Module 3: Nutrition and exercise training implementation strategies
  • Module 4: Nutrient timing and training nutrition

Month 2 will provide a mini-mentorship opportunity where you will speak with a Sport Dietitian/Level II Metabolic Efficiency Training Specialist once per week for 30 minutes. These calls will be scheduled on weekdays during normal business hours. This is a unique component of this certification and will allow you to apply the knowledge you learned in Month 1 and receive feedback and implementation strategies from a professional regarding how to use the MET concept in your practice.
