Claire Clerkin

Nutritional Therapist, Lecturer, Clinic Supervisor and Academic Tutor

I have been in clinical practice for over 10 years, and I use functional tests every week to help get the best results for my clients. They are a fantastic part of our toolkit that can add real value to your practice.

However, it took me years to build the confidence to recommend pricey tests and confidently deliver value for my client's precious spend.

I have designed this course to give newly qualified practitioners or nutritional therapy students the fundamentals of choosing, using and delivering functional tests. It's something I wish I had when I was starting out. 

What You'll Learn

Understand WHEN to test and WHICH test to use.

An overview of test analytes and what they mean.

Practical application through real case studies.

The programme consists of 12 1-hour webinars, delivered monthly.
All webinars will be recorded, so you can catch up if you miss a session, or signed up after October 2022.
This is a full 12-month commitment - part of your ongoing CPD and an easy way to keep up your learning, in your own time.
