We certainly think so. (And so do 150,000+ of our students from over 50 countries.)
According to a recent industry survey, nutrition coaches earn 3x more than the median hourly rate in the US. And PN Certified nutrition coaches? They earn 11% more income than those with other certifications.
On average, PN Level 1 Certification grads working on a very part-time basis (1-5 hours per week) are making $450 – $1,550 USD per month.
And those coaching full-time are making up to $6,000 or more per month.
Whether they want to work full-time or part-time, our students enroll in our certification programs to gain the knowledge and strategies they’ll need to help their clients or loved ones transform their health. The results speak for themselves.

If you want letters and a rubber stamp, there are organizations for that. At Precision Nutrition, we focus on teaching life-changing, career-building knowledge. And we’re recognized by universities and some of the world’s leading organizations for doing just that.
