Training Resources

*This page is under development*

Before the online NEMS course was developed, we did in-person training. Since we are unable to get the course running again due to Adobe Flash having been phased out by all internet browsers, we have uploaded our in-person training materials. This will not replace taking the online course, but for anyone interested in learning how to use the NEMS tools, you can look through the materials to help understand the tools and how to apply them.  

Below are a variety of NEMS related documents. If you cannot locate a particular item, please contact us.
