More About Gluten Free Society’s Certification Program…
Our certification program is broken down into three tiers. These tiers are graded from basic (Tier 1), to intermediate (Tier 2), to Advanced (Tier 3).
Tier 1 Certified
Tier 1 certified health care practitioners have completed a 2 hour continuing education course on gluten sensitivity. This course is designed to give an introduction to the advancements in the field of gluten research as well as to educate on the history and origin of gluten sensitivity. Tier 1 Certified health care providers are better equipped to understand, identify, and treat patients with gluten sensitivity issues. You can sign up for our new online Tier 1 Certification course here < <==
Tier 2 Certified
Tier 2 certified health care providers have completed Tier 1 educational requirements, but have also completed an advanced training seminar on the identification, diagnosis, treatment, and management of patients who are gluten sensitive. These practitioners have an advanced knowledge of lab testing and specific treatment protocols to use with patients trying to restore their health after years of gluten induced damage. If you are Tier 1 Certified, you can sign up for Tier 2 here < <<
Tier 3 Certified
Tier 3 health care providers have completed both Tier 1 and Tier 2 certification. In addition, they have reached a minimum level of experience in treating patients with gluten sensitivity. They are required to subject a minimum of 50 case studies of patients they have treated and helped using the protocols taught in Gluten Free Society’s Tier 2 certification course.

I want to do this training and I have a couple questions. Will I learn something new taking these classes if I have been through this entire website as a member?
Also – I do gluten coaching now ( I am a nutritionist) and what I need are teaching tools (charts, powerpoints, recipes, quizzes, etc). I have developed many of my own but I was wondering if this certication shares “tools to teach” this information since that is really what I see this training geared towards.
Thoughts? Thanks!February 22, 2012 at 1:20 pm #9725
The courses are heavily focused on science and clinical application of healing the patient. Some of what is taught in Tier 1 is similar to what you have learned as a member of GFS. Tier 2 is much, much, much more in depth. Both come with a pdf download of all of the slides. These can be used as teaching tools. Ther is an essay quiz at the end of each Tier for the pesron to be able to exhibit proficiency of the materials studied. Recipes are provided on this forum and in the Glutenology Cookbook.
Hope that answers your questions.
All the best,
