What on earth is a 'Pod Course'!?

A pod-course is an educational, podcast-based course that incorporates a podcast episode with further learning materials, activities and learning assessment.

About the Unpacking Weight Science Pod-Courses

Each Unpacking Weight Science Podcast episode is designed to be part of a professional development pod-course for health professionals. Many of the podcast episodes are also available on iTunes, YouTube and Spotify. However, the pod-courses are where you can turn them into assessed professional development with a Certificate of Completion.


Each pod-course has specific knowledge and skills based learning outcomes. Listening time is 20-30 minutes per episode. Reading the supporting materials, concept notes and taking the quiz should take a further 30-40 minutes. This means you'll gain about an hour of assessed professional development from each pod-course. You will have 12 months from your date of enrolment to complete each course. Check the enrolment link below for updated course availability.
