The HCG Diet Council Training and Certification Program is available around the World to Health Care Professionals, Nutritionists, Dieticians and Personal Fitness Trainers. The HCG Diet Council training is not offered to the general public nor someone wanting to become a “weight loss coach”.
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 the time involved in gathering research, keeping members up to date and/or overseeing the HCG Diet Council. The HCG Diet Corporate or Professional Membership is 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: Beyond Transformations, a division of Weight Loss Products, LLC.
HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN AROUND?
Dr Golden began working with HCG Dieters in her Clinic in St. Petersburg, FL in 2007, after spending 8 years as a healthcare Professional offering various modalities. After discovering the amazing results of the HCG Diet, she added this service to her Clinic and subsequently went on to develop a complete HCG Diet Functional Medicine Program, as well as began teaching other Professionals how to correctly oversee HCG Dieters for better long term results. Dr. Beth founded the HCG Diet Council in 2009 and launched the formal training program shortly thereafter. Many Professionals who begin with the Council training program move on to learn Dr Golden’s complete HCG Diet Business system offered through her personal company: 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 Healthcare Professionals about Dr. Simeons’ work and what has transpired to date. As a Corporate or Professional HCG Diet Council Member, you are supporting this position and by participating in the training you are investing in quality education to better your understanding of the HCG Diet and to the betterment of your HCG Diet Patients. Your Training, Membership and Credentials will give your patients the confidence they are looking for in your knowledge and expertise about the HCG Diet.
