Welcome to the Nutritional Aesthetics Alliance™ Certified Nutritional Aesthetics Practitioner™ (CNAP) Training Program!
We’re thrilled that you’re interested in learning more about the groundbreaking program that’s in the works from the NAA. The CNAP Training Program will draw from diverse areas of study to create a well-rounded, inclusive foundation for the practice of Nutritional Aesthetics™, which aims to advance an integrative approach to healthy skin. The curriculum offered in this program will be highly interactive and bring in principles of alternative, complementary, and conventional medicines, including integrative dermatology, aesthetics, coaching, Ayurveda, and TCM, among many other modalities in alignment with the Nutritional Aesthetics™ philosophy and mission. We curate information with the goal of offering you a fresh approach to skincare that’s exciting, growing in demand, and proven to deliver results. This program may even redefine your own view of healthy skin.
The CNAP Training Program will be open to a range of wellness professionals including licensed aestheticians, registered dietitians, nutritionists and certified health coaches, and other qualified professionals pending review of credentials. Entry into the program will be preceded by an application process of which we will provide details on this page as the program nears its launch.
