    I did my 2nd course through HFPA and can highly recommend them. Essentials of Nutrition course was the most recent course I completed and I did it through lockdown as they offered it free of charge. This was a great refresher as my previous nutrition course was completed in 2011. You have 3 months to complete the course and its totally doable (even working full time). The staff are super efficient and address all your questions and concerns really quick which also helps. – Yvonne Barbosa
