In this course, you will learn about the specific nutrient requirements of older adults. As the proportion of adults over 65 continues to grow, more and more of your clients will fall into this category. Specialist knowledge of this key demographic is essential for all nutrition advisers.

Malnutrition is a surprisingly common problem in older adults and this course will teach how to screen for it using MUST (malnutrition universal screening tool) as well as how to prevent and manage it.

"The best education out there"

Did my level 3 personal trainer course with Futurefit. The curriculum is well structured and comprehensive, their online learning and lessons are far superior than other providers. You can get a qualification for cheaper and in a shorter time elsewhere but will never get the deep knowledge what would make you better than an average personal trainer.
