The “Done For You” Classes To Make It Easier To Share Your Skills

This is your time.

You are needed, your knowledge is needed and people are hungry to learn the skills you have acquired as a Culinary Nutrition Expert.

It is your time to get out in the world and share.

You are well aware of what goes into creating classes and workshops. It takes hundreds of hours to research, create recipes, test them, develop your logistics plan, prep and of course promote and fill your classes. It’s great fun, but for the first few years, it can be quite a lot to build up your repertoire of classes.

What if all of the work was done for you?

We want you out in the world sharing all you have learned (and continue to learn). We want you to succeed and support you in your efforts.

With that in mind, we offer this unique, information and resource-packed portal and Certified Instructor license that is only available to certified graduates of the Culinary Nutrition Expert Program.

The Teaching Resources Portal Classes

Instructors

The Teaching Resources Portal is your go-to hub for everything you need to start teaching classes in person and live online straight away as an Academy of Culinary Nutrition Certified Instructor.

In the portal you will find everything you need to teach nine carefully designed classes created exclusively for use by our instructors. Based on over a decade of experience, and thousands of planning and teaching hours, we have chosen class topics that have far reach, are in demand and suitable to teach by both recent graduates of our program and seasoned pros who have been out in the world teaching for years.

Cooking Class / Workshop Topics Included:

  • Inspired Anti-Inflammatory Eating
  • Allergen-Friendly Cooking
  • Best Healthy Breakfasts
  • Cooking for Great Digestion
  • Eating for Awesome Energy
  • Family Favourites
  • Meal Prep Made Easy
  • Smoothie and Elixir Magic
  • Fearless Fermentation

The Resources We Provide For Each Class

For each of the above cooking class themes, we provide the following detailed resources to support your success in sharing these classes and empowering those who seek your guidance to make health happen in their own lives.

For each of the classes outlined above, you receive:

1. Promotional Copy

You’ll receive a word document with promotional copy that you can add to emails, social media posts or blog posts to help you share and promote your classes

2. Promotional Flyer

A professionally designed promotional flyer using original photography that can be sent as an email or printed and shared in local businesses to help promote your classes.

3. Promotional Images

Food Images

You’ll have gorgeous professionally styled and shot images (one per class) in various sizes and formats to use across social media to help you support your efforts in getting the word out about your classes.

4. Original Recipes

A packet of original recipes specially created to support the class topic.

5. Logistics Plan for a Cooking Class*

This logistics plan is to help you get set and ready for success. It includes your prep schedule, equipment list, and time blocking for a hands-on cooking class.

6. Logistics Plan for a Workshop

Prefer a demonstration-style workshop? We also include a logistics plan for a workshop that includes a prep schedule, equipment list and time blocking chart for a demonstration-style class.

7. Teaching Manual and Talking Points

Consider this your cheat sheet. For each class, you receive a fully researched and referenced guide to sharing your nutritional knowledge while teaching. This guide includes all of the recipes, outlining specific key health tips and culinary tips for key ingredients in each recipe. There is also space provided to add your own notes.

8. Student Handout

Enable your students to follow along and leave them empowered with a handout that includes the key takeaways from the class guides, tips, strategies, all of the recipes made in class along with all of the references for the research.

9. Resources For Teaching Online

For each class outlined above, we also include materials that are specific for live online teaching use including guidelines for teaching online, your online teaching logistics plan and handout for your students.

9. Shopping List

Finally, we also include your class shopping list in an editable document so you can add and remove items as needed based on any specifications you need for your class.

*There is no logistics plan for a cooking class for the Smoothie and Elixir class. We’re hopeful people know how to blend stuff, so this class topic is best suited as a demo-style workshop where you can wow your crew with knowledge.

BecomE An Academy of Culinary Nutrition Certified Instructor

As a graduate of the Culinary Nutrition Expert Program, having successfully completed the program, you are now eligible to become an Academy of Culinary Nutrition Certified Instructor.

Steps to becoming an Academy of Culinary Nutrition Certified Instructor:

  1. Complete the application form and register for the Teaching Resources Portal
  2. Receive your Certified Instructor license and schedule your first class(es)!

Return On Your Investment

Our expectation is that you will be charging attendees for these classes, making your investment in the Teaching Resources Portal incredibly cost-efficient. Let’s do some math!

Time Needed To Create A Cooking Class

To create a class from start to finish including recipe creation and testing, promotional images, promotional copy,  your prep schedule, teaching plan, research, speaking notes and student handout.

  • Time needed per class to do on your own: 40+ hours per class
  • Time needed using the Teaching Portal Resources: 1 hour (mainly updating your shopping list)

Total time savings: 360 hours!

The time it takes to prepare classes is not billable time. It’s time that takes you away from teaching, working with clients, and limits your free time. The Teaching Resources Portal allows you to save time getting your classes ready, and more time for family, friends, and the other aspects of your life.

Earnings Per Class

Depending on where you live and what others in your area are charging, most classes and workshops can sell for $60 – $110 per person, per in-person class. For a live, online class, you could start at $35 per person, per online class.

Let’s break down your profitable possibilities.

Sample Earnings:

  • Two classes for six people at $75/person: You will earn $900. Do that twice and you’ll have earned back your investment in the portal, and cover your hard costs for your class. Basically, you could break even after teaching just two classes.
  • Teaching a 4-week cooking program: Choose four of the eight classes to sell as a 4-part cooking series. Let’s say you have room for eight people and package this up and sell it for $380 for the 4-week series. That works out to $3,040!
  • Teaching one class a month to ten people for eight months: Let’s say you are doing this as a side hustle and want to teach a different class on the first Saturday of the month from September through to May (taking December off!). If you have ten people register at $100/class for all eight Saturdays, you would earn $8,000 per year! Over 10 times your investment and a sweet little bonus income.

The Teaching Resources Portal is the investment in your business to potentially save you hundreds of hours of your time. And earn you thousands of dollars in your pocket.

 

You have already done the training. You’ve put in your time. Let us help you get out there and start sharing what you know.

WHAT OTHER CERTIFIED INSTRUCTORS SAY

Included In The Teaching Resources Portal

When you become a Certified Instructor, you’ll receive:

  • A Two-Year License: That’s right! Consider yourself a licensed Certified Instructor! Your license will become active as soon as your registration is complete so you can get out there to show the world what an awesome instructor you are.
  • A Certified Instructor Apron: No one will mistake who you are showing up to your class rocking our signature orange Certified Instructor apron. It’s no joke that we have been asked to sell these, but they are reserved for Certified Instructors only!
  • Done-For-You Cooking Classes: With your two year license, comes two-years to access the Teaching Resources Portal where you’ll find all the done-for-you class elements, including promotional copy and images, handouts for your guests, your shopping list, even talking points for you during your class! All you have to do is add your class to your calendar and invite your guests!
  • 30+ Video Modules to Help You Succeed: You absolutely can put on a successful cooking class, even if you have never done any other cooking classes outside of your final Culinary Nutrition Expert Program. With your Certified Instructor license, you’ll receive 2-year access to the Teaching Resources Portal where you will find over 30 professionally filmed videos to guide you in getting your classes off the ground. From food safety practises to how to price to the best setup for an online event, we have you covered to ensure your class runs as smoothly as homemade nut butter.

Not Included In The Teaching Resources Portal

Yes, the Teaching Resources Portal includes everything you need to get ready and set to teach your classes. But this isn’t for everyone and doesn’t guarantee your success. That comes from your efforts!

The Teaching Resources Portal Is:

  • Not For Business Training: This is about teaching cooking classes and making it easy for you to do it. This isn’t a business plan and we don’t talk business beyond what’s outlined above. The Biz Rocking Insider program is the business training component and would be the first step to starting a business.
  • Not For Pre-recorded or Recorded Video-based Teaching: These classes are designed for live, in-person or live online classes only. For what we think are obvious reasons, we do not permit recordings of these classes to be shared online in any capacity. If you would like to create classes to sell online as recordings, refer to Assignment 8 in the Culinary Nutrition Expert program for details on how to create your own classes from scratch.
  • Not Granting Permission to Modify and Make These Classes Unique: These classes are designed and created to be shared just as they are. The idea is that someone could attend the Smoothie and Elixir class by a Certified Academy of Culinary Nutrition Instructor in Toronto, New York and Dubai, and would learn the same materials and experience the same recipes.
  • Not Providing Registration Support: We do not take a cut on your classes. What you sell is all yours and as such, it is the responsibility of our Certified Instructors to manage all payments, refunds and anything else associated with enrolling students in your classes.
  • Not Providing Specific Guidance On How To Grow Your Audience: Once again, everything related to building and growing your business is covered in the Biz Rocking Insider Program.

Teaching Resources Portal FAQ

Does the Academy of Culinary Nutrition take a cut of what I earn from these classes?

Absolutely not! When you purchase your two year-license to use these materials, consider it like a franchise fee. You get access to the materials, branding, title and all that jazz and the sky is the limit for how much you want to earn. All income you generate in your teaching business is all yours. This won’t stop us from cheerleading for your classes, and sharing them with the wider ACN community.

Can I register for this on its own, without being a Culinary Nutrition Expert or if I am an honorary student?
The Teaching Resources Portal is for Certified graduates of the Culinary Nutrition Expert Program only.

If I don’t register now, when else can I access this?
We only offer registration in the Teaching Resources Portal twice per year, for a limited time. Registration will be open in February and September, 2022.

Can I use these materials to teach classes online?
We have teaching materials created for all 9 classes specifically for use for live online teaching. As teaching in person and teaching online are very different for both the instructor and participants, we ask that you only use the live online class resources for your online classes.

Can I use these resources for teaching one-on-one consulting and private classes?
Absolutely! And this can be a very powerful format to help those who seek your guidance to transform their cooking.

Do you provide an equipment list?
The tools and equipment needed for each class are outlined in the Logistics Plans we provide.

When does my license take effect?
Your two year license will begin as soon as you register.

What does the “2 year license” mean?
With registration as a Certified Instructor we grant access to the Teaching Resources Portal and include a 2 year license to use and teach the materials we provide. Following this initial two year period, we reserve the right to initiate a license renewal process with a supplemental fee for ongoing continued use.

What happens when my license expires?
With registration as a Certified Instructor as of January 2022, after the initial 2 year-license period expires, access to the teaching materials will be revoked. If you wish to extend your license, you can do so at a cost of $34/month or $298/year ($110 savings)*. You will be notified in advance of this.

*The fee is subject to change without notice.

What happens if I want to teach the classes in my first language, or the first language where I live?
Though we thought long and hard about how we can get everything professionally translated and designed for you, at this time, it’s just not feasible. However, we don’t want to limit you from teaching.

We will be permitting those of you who send in a written request to translate the Student Handout and Recipes as needed to execute your classes. Once we have received  your request, we will send you very specific copyright copy, in your preferred language, to include in all of your translated documents that will be passed around to students.

More questions? Email us at info@culinarynutrition.com and we’ll get back to you as quickly as we can.
