Yes, ACHS is DETC accredited but so is Ashworth College
and Huntington College of Health Sciences. Both offer
Diploma's in Nutrition as well. Ashworth's is more Dietetics
oriented whereas Huntington does have both a conventional
and Holistic Approach.

Having said that, getting a Diploma at any of these colleges
does not qualify one to practice as a Nutritionist in almost
any state in the US. One is considered an unlicensed
practitioner. Even in the few states with Health Freedom
laws one can usually practice only with a lot of restrictions
and cannot call themselves a Nutritionist. Still the
knowledge gained about nutrition from any of these courses
is sometimes well worth the costs of them anyway. Payment
plans are available at all of the above.

Another School to consider is Stonebridge Associated
Colleges. While some Internet sites mistakenly list this
school along with many Diploma mills, it is in fact not a
Diploma mill but a legitimate career college in the UK. Their
Clinical Nutrition course earns one a Level 4 NVQ
qualification accredited by NCFE, qualifies one to call oneself
a "Nutritionist" in the UK, and allows one to be eligible for
indemnity insurance. An NVQ in the UK is a "National
Vocational Qualification", a Level 4 NVQ is roughly
equivalent to first year University, and the NCFE
accreditation is fully UK government approved. NCFE is a an
accrediting agency recognized by the UK government to
accredit National Vocational Qualifications.

Since getting any of the US Diploma's do not qualify one to
practice as a Nutritionist in the US despite their DETC
accreditations, if one is looking for yet another good course
in basic holistic nutrition, Stonebridge is another option for
some. Like the US schools, you are getting a good basic
education in nutrition principles from a qualified Western

The Clinical Nutrition Diploma is quite Holistically oriented
but with the relevant Science as well. Payments plans are
available at Stonebridge as well.

The Diploma in Comprehensive Nutrition at HCHS costs
$2,970. The Certificate in Holistic Nutrition Consulting at
ACHS costs $3,060. The Diploma in Nutrition Diet and
Health at Ashworth cost $719. The Clinical Nutrition
Diploma at Stonebrige costs around $780 US dollars at the
current exchange rate.

No I do not have any financial interest or association with
any of these schools. I simply put the information out there
for those who might be interested.

ACHS is not your only choice.
