Eligibility: Who is qualified to take the Certified GAPS™ Practitioner Training course?
- The Certified GAPS™ Practitioner (CGP) Training course is open to Chiropractors, Clinical Nutritionists, Certified Nutritional Therapy Consultants and Practitioners, Naturopathic Doctors, Osteopathic Doctors, Medical Doctors, Nurses, Psychologists, Social Workers, and Occupational Therapists with additional nutrition training, and all other medical and qualified holistic professionals who have extensive training in nutrition, bio-chemistry, and anatomy and physiology. It is not a self-help or cooking course, nor is it about any other content already covered in the GAPS book – although there will be a review of the GAPS to ensure all CPGs know the basics. IF YOU ARE NOT ACTIVELY SEEING CLIENTS/PATIENTS please only inquire when you are in active practice. ALL enrollment requests will need final approval by Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride.
- The purpose of this training is to produce qualified GAPS PRACTITIONERS who will be able to identify and advise patients/clients in a clinical setting who present with GAPS symptoms and to develop for them a personal nutritional protocol based on GAPS.
- Certified GAPS Practitioners (CGPs) will be the only practitioners that Dr. Campbell-McBride will refer clients/patients to.
- CGP students will receive digital files of a practitioner-specific manual, client workbook and business branding materials to immediately begin sharing GAPS education in their practices.
- All Certified GAPS Practitioners will be permitted to use official GAPS branding in their practice advertisements and materials.
- Upon completion of the training, Certified GAPS Practitioners will be authorized to use the CGP credential (as long as they keep their GAPS certification in good standing) and the GAPS Protocol in their practices, and they will have the option to be published on Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride’s “Find A GAPS Practitioner” web page on www.GAPS.me.
- If you do not have a background in nutrition, bio-chemistry, and anatomy/physiology, and you do not meet the practitioner level qualifications outlined above, please ask about our new paraprofessional training, the “GAPS Coach Training“, which is open to individuals who have had personal experience and success with the GAPS Diet, who are now seeking a certification to help others learn and implement the GAPS Nutritional Protocol in a hands-on fashion, in addition to professionals without additional nutrition training, such as massage therapists, pharmacists, social workers, personal trainers, health coaches, teachers, etc., etc. GAPS Coaches are greatly needed, so please do inquire should you not qualify to take the GAPS Practitioner Training.
