Why join NTOI?
The NTOI currently supports full members, practicing and non practicing, and student members throughout Ireland.
The advantages of membership of the NTOI are varied and suit different practitioners in different ways. The most important is that the NTOI is the largest organisation representing qualified Nutritional Therapists in Ireland. This gives the members access to a substantial peer group and an excellent support network throughout the country.
The NTOI membership is constantly increasing, bringing a wide variety of knowledge, skills, interests and people into the organisation. It provides invaluable professional support and opportunities as well as the knowledge that you are a member of a professional organisation which constantly reviews its services, and maintains the highest standards.
The NTOI has much to offer all its members, be they students or fully qualified, practising or non-practising. The ongoing CPD programme and the numerous peer-driven events around the country mean there is an active and vibrant NTOI network nationwide.
The NTOI welcome applications for membership from any Nutritional Therapists or student Nutritional Therapists who have undertaken, or are undertaking their training at NTOI recognised colleges in Ireland, or equivalent in other countries. (Membership enquiries from colleges overseas should email [email protected] directly with their qualification details).
The NTOI does not run its own courses but recognises diplomas from NTOI accredited colleges. The courses taken must be the full diploma (level 7 up), with a minimum of 200 hours supervised clinical training as a module. The NTOI does not recommend any one college above the others.
We are continually promoting the benefits of Nutritional Therapy through the work of our volunteer members to other health care professionals, government, health care insurance providers, the media, and to the public at large.
