HOW LONG IS THE HCG DIET TRAINING?
The training consists of 6 core pre-recorded training modules, each of which are approximately 30 – 60 minutes long (a total of 3 to 4 hours). Multiple choice certification questions follow each module and results are immediate.
There is also a free bonus training available only with the purchase of the Dieter Forms and handouts digital package. This 7th free module training is a very comprehensive module explaining every form and handout and how to use them. It is 1 hour and 45 minutes long and because it is pre-recorded, it can be stopped and started and any portion rewatched (just like the other modules).
The 6 core training modules are accessible from 8am-9pm on Saturday of the specific training date and each attendee receives his/her own unique login credentials via email at 8am the morning of the training. If you purchase the Dieter Forms and handouts digital package, you have access to the entire training for 2 full days beginning at 8am Saturday until 9pm on Sunday evening.
ARE THE HCG DIET TRAINING MODULES ACCESSIBLE AT A SPECIFIC TIME?
The training is available each month on the specified date(s) you register for and is accessible in the time frames in your time zone as listed above.
DO I RECEIVE A MANUAL WITH THE HCG DIET TRAINING?
Yes, if you register by the deadline, you will be shipped a color, spiral-bound, hard copy manual in time for the training. If you do not register by the deadline, there is not enough time to receive your manual before the training and you will need to wait until the HCG Diet Training is offered again. If you are located outside North America, we will make arrangements for a specific training weekend date to accommodate you after you receive your training materials.
HOW DO I FIND OUT THE DETAILS, DATES AND COSTS OF THE NEXT TRAINING?
Training are offered 1 Saturday a month. The 6 core training modules are available from 8am – 9pm. For those who purchase the Dieter Forms and handouts digital package, a 7th FREE Bonus training is provided covering all the forms and handouts in detail and the accessibility to the entire training is extended through 9pm Sunday. This bonus module is designed to watch after successfully completing all the other modules.
The registration deadline for each month’s training is Friday 5pm EST, the week before the training. For more information, visit the Training Information Page. Here you will find 2 web pages of details, as well as the Training Program outline. At the end of the 2nd web page is the inquiry form for details of costs and dates. After completion and submission of the form, the next page will render more details and you will also receive an email within about 10 minutes or less, with a copy of training details and the training registration form.
WHAT IS THE PROCESS FOR THE HCG DIET TRAINING CERTIFICATION?
The HCG Diet Certification is optional. The certification questions are multiple choice and follow each module. They are to help you learn and retain the information and are not trick questions. The questions follow the information in your manual and cover the training material again to help reinforce what you watched in that recorded module. They are graded immediately and you will be alerted if you missed any and have the opportunity to answer again. 90% needs to be obtained to pass. For more information, visit the Training Information Page.
WHO IS ELIGIBLE TO TAKE THE HCG DIET COUNCIL TRAINING?
The HCG Diet Council Training and Certification Program is available around the World to Licensed Healthcare Professionals and their staff, Licensed Nutritionists and/or Dieticians and Personal Fitness Trainers with a working knowledge of health, wellness and supplementation. Since the liability for overseeing dieters lies with the Practitioner, we may refuse training and require a non-licensed applicant to be the employee of a Licensed Healthcare Professional. The HCG Diet Council training is not offered to the general public nor someone wanting to become a “weight loss coach”. Even though health situations and recommendations are covered in the “How to Recognize Tough Cases” module, no training on supplements, products nor health conditions are offered by The HCG Diet Council. This is outside the scope of the training.
CAN I RECEIVE EDUCATIONAL CREDITS (CEU’s) FOR THE HCG DIET TRAINING?
The HCG Diet Council is a very affordable training program solely focused on offering valid, standardized information to Health Care Professionals about Dr. Simeons’ work, the HCG Diet and gathering HCG Diet research and is not a CEU accreditation program at this time.
ARE YOU A NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATION?
We are an organization run by an Advisory Council of Health Care Professional volunteers who are not compensated for their time. The HCG Diet Professional or Corporate Membership is optional and available to Healthcare Professionals at a nominal price and offers a significant discount on the training fee. Membership support is an excellent way to validate to your patients your association with The HCG Diet Council and is greatly appreciated to help cover The Council’s operating costs.
WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED?
We are located in St. Petersburg, Florida and coordinate our efforts through the additional voluntary services of Dr. Golden’s company for Licensed Professionals: Beyond Transformations.
HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN AROUND?
Dr Golden began working with HCG Dieters in her Clinic in St. Petersburg, FL in 2007, after spending the previous 8 years as a Natural Healthcare Professional offering various modalities. After discovering the amazing results of the HCG Diet, she added this service to her medi-spa and subsequently went on to develop a 4 part HCG Diet program which included detoxification before starting the HCG Diet. She employed and taught Drs and Nurse Practitioners her methods to oversee HCG Dieters for better long term results. Dr. Beth founded the HCG Diet Council in 2009 and launched the formal training program to Licensed Healthcare Professionals shortly thereafter. Many Professionals who begin with the Council training program move on to add Dr Golden’s HCG Diet approved products and oil-free non-toxic HCG Diet skincare from the Professionals’ wholesale product division: Beyond Transformations.
AS A PROFESSIONAL, WHY WOULD I WANT TO BECOME A MEMBER OR TAKE THE HCG DIET TRAINING?
The HCG Diet Council is positioned as the vehicle to provide standardization of information to Licensed Healthcare Professionals about Dr. Simeons’ work and what has transpired to date. Professional or Corporate HCG Diet Council Members support this position and by participating in the training are investing in quality education to better understand the HCG Diet and to the betterment of HCG Diet Patients. Training, Membership and Credentials offers the patients of Healthcare Professionals the confidence they are looking for in knowledge and expertise about the HCG Diet. Professionals walk away from the training with the truth about the history of the HCG Diet and a better understanding of what it can and cannot do and the legal liability in making claims outside of these perimeters.

DO YOU “POLICE THE INTERNET” AND THE CLAIMS I SEE WEBSITES MAKING?
We undoubtedly know more about the HCG Diet and see more on the internet than the average individual, but no, “we do not police” or monitor the internet. We offer information on our website and through our trainings as to the correct, legal information we support in regard to the HCG Diet. Outlandish claims and promises to cure weight problems are not supported whatsoever by The HCG Diet Council and more details are covered in Module 6 – Legal Liability.
WHO CONDUCTS THE HCG DIET COUNCIL TRAINING?
The lead educator is Beth Golden, PhD, ND and our Founder. She has been involved intensely with the HCG Diet since early 2007, has trained with Dr. Daniel Belluscio, MD from Argentina. Dr. Belluscio mentored with Dr. Simeons in the 60s and he has personally worked with more than 35,000 patients since then. Beth Golden has worked with 10’s of thousands of HCG Dieters and 1000’s of Health Care Professionals, as well as many forms of prescription and homeopathic hCG since 2007, including the formulation of many of her own HCG Diet Products, Detoxification Programs and HCG Diet Oil Free Natural Skincare Products. She has trained, lectured and given personal advice to 1000’s of Health Care Professionals throughout the World how to effectively oversee HCG Dieters.
Through these trainings, Beth’s mission continues to be to help properly educate Healthcare Professionals on the details and history of the HCG Diet since the 1950s and continue to monitor HCG Diet Research on the efficacy of the HCG Diet.
