Nutritional Therapists of Ireland
NTOI (Nutritional Therapists of Ireland) is the professional organisation representing qualified Nutritional Therapists in Ireland.
The organisation is independently run through its membership.
The NTOI is a registered non profit company with no capital and has a minimum of 3 directors at any time. One of the directives of the board is to ensure that the professional status of NTOI registered Nutritional Therapists is formally recognised in Ireland.
A qualified registered Nutritional Therapist is someone who holds a minimum 3 year diploma in Nutritional Therapy and is trained in basic biochemistry, physiology and pathology as well as 200 hours supervised clinical practice. As such, a Nutritional Therapist is qualified to work in private practice and see clients on a one to one or group basis. They are fully insured and must comply with the NTOI requirements for Continuing Professional Development (CPD) and Code of Professional Ethics & Practice.
The organisation is run by volunteers from the membership who form the General Committee.
Specific sub-committees oversee CPD and membership as well as special NTOI events.
