Become an Authority in Functional Nutrition!
New COT Program Structure! Course content now offered in 9 content-rich modules registered for separately or as a bundle with special savings.
Learn more about topics of your choice or complete all 9 modules (with additional requirements) to earn your Functional Medicine Nutrition Specialist (FMNS) Certification and be recognized as a Functional Nutrition authority!
Note: Our new course structure combines all topics from both previous courses, COT and Advanced IFMNT – all content is now in one. A separate advanced course remains only for those who took COT previously, who want to continue to complete their studies and earn their credential.
COT training now provides 235 CPEs. Credentialing requires an additional 12 CPE of Grand Rounds case review. All totaled, our program offers over 260 pre-approved CPE hours for RDNs! (Others should inquire with their credentialing board).
Who Qualifies to Register? Our program is deeply rooted in science and covers a strong component of medical nutrition therapy. As such, registration is open only to RDNs, dietetic Interns, and nutritionists with a nutrition-related 4-year degree or a 2-year master’s degree who are qualified to practice medical nutrition therapy in their state of residence. Others who qualify: medical practitioners with a minimum 4-year science-based degree, who have nutrition in their scope of practice (MD, DO, DC, PharmD, RN, ND, Nurse Practitioners, DDS, etc) – this may depend on state statutes. Note: Dietetic Interns may apply but must have completed their internship and have become credentialed before they will be qualified to sit for the certification exam at the completion of this training.
