Online training modules can be completed at any time at your convenience.
Each module takes about 45-60 minutes to complete depending on which one you complete. You can stop and start whenever you like.
The training was developed by dietitians and nutritionists from Nutrition Australia.
You’ll work through a series of topics at your own pace. You can keep notes and you’ll be guided along the way to learn more about how to provide and promote healthier foods and drinks in your organisation.
There’s no formal assessment but you will be prompted to check your understanding of the content.
Our online training modules cover the same content as our face to face workshops with the exception of a module specifically for point of sale staff in retail outlets, which is offered online only.
You can choose from the following modules:
- Healthy eating in long day care
- Healthy eating in outside school hours care
- Healthy school food services - NEW!
- Understanding the Healthy Choices guidelines for point of sale staff in retail food outlets
- Understanding the Healthy Choices guidelines for retail outlets and caterers
To get started, all you need to do is register or login if you have already registered.
Face to face training
Face to face training workshops are scheduled throughout the year in metropolitan Melbourne and regional locations.
The training is facilitated by dietitians and nutritionists from Nutrition Australia. This workshop has lots of discussion and time for questions. As well as learning about how to provide and promote healthier foods and drinks you’ll get to meet people in similar roles in other organisations. It’s a great chance to network and people who have attended comment that it’s a great benefit of their experience.
Workshops are around three hours long and all training materials are provided on the day. All you have to do is come along!
