Precision Nutrition’s Level 1 Nutrition Certification Earns Industry’s-First Recognition by the American Council on Education (ACE) as a University-Level Program

Graduates of PN’s L1 Certification Can Now Apply for College Credits in the U.S.

TORONTO, August 25, 2021Precision Nutrition (PN), the world’s largest online nutrition and healthy lifestyle coaching and certification company, announces that students who complete PN’s industry-leading Level 1 (L1) Nutrition Certification are now eligible to receive college credit for their coursework following recent approval by the American Council on Education’s (ACE) Learning Evaluations, the major coordinating body for U.S. higher education institutions. The recommendation from ACE provides further validation of the quality of PN’s curriculum and expands the opportunities for education and career goals for graduates.

Students who complete the L1 Nutrition Certification program along with an additional, final virtual proctored exam can earn three session or credit hours at the Bachelors first or second year level—in the form of the “Introduction to Fitness and Wellness” course. Once a passing grade of at least 70% has been achieved on the proctored exam, students will receive a transcript that includes the recommended college credit. They may then request to apply these credits toward a post-secondary degree at select colleges or universities in the U.S. For more information about ACE transcripts visit,

“The global pandemic has presented many challenges to students around the world and as a result, many are re-evaluating their options or deferring their official start to the upcoming academic year, hard-pressed to justify paying full tuition for a virtual experience,” said Timothy Jones, CEO of Precision Nutrition. “We’re extremely proud to offer university-level nutrition education, the industry’s leading certification, and now the ability to get college credit—without the high cost of a university course—to our growing community of coaches, and all students interested in deepening their knowledge on nutrition and change psychology.”
