We've worked with nearly 50,000 students from every corner of this industry — from personal training and yoga to functional medicine, holistic wellness coaching, and beyond.

Whether you're already mid-career or just starting out, this certification will give you the knowledge, systems, and tools to make a real, lasting change with anyone you work with.
I have a busy life. How long does it take to get certified?
The PN Level 1 Certification is entirely self-paced, so there's no deadline. You can take as much time or as little time as you like.

If you'd like some guidelines, however, the pace that seems to work best for most of our students is completing one chapter per week. That means reading the chapter, reviewing the online video, answering the workbook questions, reviewing the FAQ, and writing the 10-question exam.

If you follow that structure, you can expect to spend 3-5 hours per week on the certification materials. Since there are 18 total chapters, you'd earn your Pn1 credentials in a little over four months. Although you can move more quickly or slowly depending on your situation.

What are the exams like?
There are 18 short exams with 10 questions each. Questions are either multiple choice or true or false.

The exams are delivered online; they can be accessed whenever you're ready. Also, each exam corresponds with the chapter you just studied, and completing the exam unlocks the next chapter.

For instance, if you read Chapter 1 of the textbook, watch the corresponding video lesson, answer your workbook questions, and review the FAQ, you'll be ready to take the Chapter 1 exam. Once the Chapter 1 exam is completed, you'll instantly see your results and get access to the Chapter 2 materials.
What grade do I need to pass?
At least 75%, which most students easily achieve or surpass.

By the end of the course, you'll have written 18 short, 10-question exams, for a total of 180 questions. Get at least 135 of the questions correct (75%) to earn your Pn1 credentials. We'll send your official certificate immediately after you pass.
What if I don't pass the course?
If you don't earn 135 out of 180 points in the course, you can write a re-do exam at the end of the course. You'll get 5 chances to earn 75% or greater on this exam.
Any requirements needed to maintain my certification?
As a Precision Nutrition Level 1 Certified professional, you are required to re-write an exam every two years from your date of course completion to keep your certification current and valid. Re-certifying is simple, free and no CEUs needed.
