About the Fully Online Distance Program

The National Maternal Nutrition Intensive Course distance program will be available from September 1-December 31. This program will include all 7 recorded presentations and is a fully online self-led course. Participants will watch presentations and complete evaluations on their own time starting on September 1 and will need to be completed by December 31 in order to receive a certificate of completion for credit.


The distance program will be offered at a flat rate per person, so individuals may view any combination of distance sessions. The registration fee of $35.00 per person includes program sessions and a continuing education certificate for professional continuing education contact hours or units.
