Entry Requirements

Existing healthcare practitioner or science degree graduate. Other applicants considered on a per application basis. A minimum of 20 students is needed for the course to run. A number of graduates of the 2015/2106 class would be happy to speak with you about how cPNI 1 & 2 has enhanced their practice.

This is what Karina had to say who came to refresh content:

‘One of the things that soon became clear to me working with people was that although nutrition is a critical component of health and disease, it is just one component. To see real progress, you need to look beyond nutrition and consider other equally important aspects of health such as social aspects, psycho-emotional, cognitive and sexual. I knew that already from my functional training, but I did not feel entirely equipped to put that knowledge into practice. I was already a Master NLP Practitioner, so I was already using a broader skill set to look at a bigger picture, but I was not yet able to completely join all the dots. Then I went to Natura Foundation’s very first taster weekend on cPNI in the UK. In fact I sat next to Kate Neil, who was also attending, and I remember saying to her “this joins all the dots, I just have to do this.”  So I did and I have never looked back.’ ‘For me cPNI ticks all the boxes; it considers all areas of human existence and it makes so much sense. When things make sense they are much easier to work with. It has revolutionised my way of working with clients and the results and feedback have been brilliant.’

Fees for cPNI

  • Fees for 2018-2019 are yet to be confirmed. 2015-2016 fees were based on £2400 for module 1 and £2550 for module 2. It is likely fees would increase for 2018/2019 as these fees were exceptional!
  • Refresher Fee for existing cPNI Practitioners was based on half the module fee. Existing Practitioners could also register for individual days.
  • An examination at the end of the cPNI 2 is optional and not included in the above fees. Exam fee for 2016 was £275. cPNI 2 would be delivered in 2019
  • A deposit of £500 would be required in January 2018 for a course starting in April or in March for a course starting in June and would be refunded if the course was unable to start.
