Formulation Courses

Upcoming sessions: 8/4/20 and 9/17/20

RFN Spreadsheet Crash Course

Date and time: 8/4/20 at 6:30pm CDT

Join us for the RFN Spreadsheet Crash Course, a three hour webinar and Q&A hosted by Jenny Ryoo, the creator of the RFN Spreadsheet.

The Crash Course will review the basics of formulation for healthy, adult dogs. Jenny will show you how to formulate a recipe from scratch, starting with setting up the pet profile, and ending with creating a report to get ready for food prep. This course will include a section for formulating pack recipes.

Class size is limited to 30 students. A recording of the webinar will be available to students after. If you are in a different time zone, you can also email your questions ahead of time for the Q&A.

This course only covers formulation for healthy adult dogs.

Prerequisites: Purchase of the RFN Formulation Spreadsheet and completion of the RFN Full Course, or a similar canine nutrition course.

This course does not cover basic spreadsheet use or setup. It also does not cover basic nutrition knowledge – students should already have completed the RFN Full Course and be comfortable and familiar with the material.

Webinar Only

The basic level of the course includes attendance to the live three hour webinar and Q&A, a recording of the event, as well as a Crash Course exclusive formulation cheat sheet.

Price: $15 USD

In addition to the webinar course, you will be able to submit one recipe for review on a private Facebook group. Recipes will be reviewed by one of the following RFN mods (requested accepted).
