NEMS Training

NEMS Online Training Course

NOTE: This training course uses Adobe Flash, which IS NOT supported after Dec. 31, 2020. We will update the website when we have a solution, but in the meantime, we’ve assembled a page of resources.

The purpose of the NEMS Online course is to provide training to individuals interested in learning more in-depth about assessing nutrition environments and specifically using the NEMS store (NEMS-S) and NEMS restaurant (NEMS-R) tools. Upon completion of the course, participants will feel comfortable using the tools in their own projects and research.

NEMS Online covers consumer nutrition basics, enumerating food outlets in a neighborhood, completing the NEMS observational measures in stores and restaurants, customization of the tools, and analyzing and presenting results.  This training is primarily self-paced and instructor moderated. The course is accessible all of the time.

Once participants submit their completed fieldwork, participants will be certified NEMS rater and will receive a certificate of completion, feedback on their surveys, and additional technical assistance as needed.
