Community Nutrition Educators

Education and Training Requirements

High School

If you want to be a community nutrition educator, take health, family and consumer science, psychology, computer science, statistics, and mathematics classes. You’ll need to be skilled at conveying information orally and in writing, so take as many English, speech, and writing classes as possible to hone your skills. Web and graphic design classes will come in handy because some educators have to design and create educational brochures, posters, and Web sites. Many educators work with immigrants who do not speak English fluently. Taking a foreign language—such as Spanish or Mandarin—will help you to better communicate with these groups. Take marketing and advertising classes because it not enough to know about nutrition; you will need to be skilled at conveying this information to people via brochures, social media posts, YouTube videos, and other methods.
