Frequently Asked Questions
Who Can Take the CGP Course?
The Certified Gluten-Free Practitioner (CGP) Program is designed for all types of wellness professionals (both licensed and non-licensed), including MDs, NDs, RDs, RNs, Chiropractors, Health Coaches, Nutritionists, Acupuncturists and more! The course is the perfect certification to complement your wellness practice. Earning your CGP designation lets potential and current clients/ patients know that you’re a certified and educated resource for guidance on the topics of gluten, wheat-related disorders, and autoimmunity. Becoming a CGP does not grant any additional legal or accredited specialty status.
Not a wellness professional?

exam or certification.
Why Should I Become a CGP?
CGPs find it very helpful to have this certification, as it establishes a niche, credibility, and an area of expertise within their profession. This specialized education can help jump-start or expand your practice by helping patients uncover and address gluten and wheat-related disorders, food and environmental sensitivities, hidden health issues, and autoimmune conditions before it’s too late.
Ongoing Training for CGPs.
As an added bonus and part of your CGP membership, Dr. O’Bryan provides CGPs with frequent live training webinars on functional lab testing, current research, protocols, and other important topics, so you can stay ahead of the curve. These recordings are stored in the CGP Member Center for 24/7 access. See Once You Are Certified for details.
Does the CGP Course Qualify for CEs/CMEs?
The program is currently approved for CEUs through the National Association of Nutrition Professionals (NANP) and the Nutritional Therapy Association (NTA). We are working towards obtaining additional CE approvals from other professional organizations. We do not offer CME credits for medical doctors at this time.
