Online Courses and Webinars

Webinars

It may not always be possible or a good use of time to take time off to attend a full day or half day nutrition seminar. For those people we are building up a library of live and recorded webinars, on a range of topical nutrition and food service topics, that you can watch in the comfort of your home (or office) and at your own time (pre-recorded webinars. )
Our webinars make it easy for you to stay up-to-date on relevant nutrition issues.
The live recordings provide the opportunity to interact with the instructor and fellow attendees and there is a Q& A session.
