I have read and agree to the NS Terms and Affidavit (see below)
I have read the Nutrition Specialist Candidate Handbook

Candidates that do not successfully pass the Nutrition Specialist Examination the first time may retake the exam with no penalties after a 60 day waiting period.

There is a $125 fee associated with retaking the exam. If a candidate fails the exam a second time, he/she is not eligible to purchase and retake the exam for one year and must pay the current fees.


I attest that I have read the NS Candidate Handbook and the NS Candidate Terms and I agree to the terms and conditions included in both these documents.

Workshop Refund Policy
Candidates choosing the Live Workshop program must comply with the refund and continuing education policy. Space is limited so pre-registration is required. A refund is given for cancellations with 30 days notice prior to the live workshop date; however, a charge of $50 will be applied for handling/shipping charges. Additional charges will be applied for materials not returned. All returned items must be in “saleable” condition. All other cancellations will be credited toward future workshops. A $50 charge will be applied for changing/switching course dates. A 24-hour notice is required for any credit toward future workshops. Should fewer than 10 candidates register for a workshop, AASDN retains the right to cancel the workshop. Those affected will be notified no later than 14 days before the workshop date and offered the opportunity to transfer to a different site at no additional cost; obtain a refund; or switch to the home study course. AASDN is not responsible for expenses incurred by a candidate due to a canceled workshop. No-shows who do not arrive at the workshop and who do not cancel or transfer their registrations will forfeit the registration fee. Should they wish to take the workshop at a later date they will need to register again and pay the full registration fee. AASDN is committed to attaining and maintaining high standards as a continuing education provider. Therefore, students must attend the entire workshop to receive continuing education.

Home Study and Materials Refund Policy
Confirmation, directions and materials will be mailed to you upon receipt of completed registration form. AASDN offers a refund, less shipping and handling within 14 days of purchase provided materials are returned unopened and in saleable condition. Requests for refund must be made in writing to AASDN before the 14 day deadline. All sales are final after the 14 day period. All materials are warranted and will be replaced at no charge.

Publications and Exam Refund Policy
All sales are final and no refunds are given for products listed under publications and no refunds are provided for exams.


I attest that to the fact that the participant name for any certification or certificate product is the person enrolling in the specified program and that and the participant alone, will be completing the specified program.
