Nebraska Training and Education for Nutrition Teams (NTENT).  Participants will learn about running a successful school meal program,  meal pattern requirements and have hands on opportunities to create or modify current menus to meet the requirements.  Register early!  Classes fill up fast and are limited to 25 participants, only 2 participants per district can attend.  Early registration deadline is April 15, 2013.  All participants must be at least 19 years of age.

NTENT has a long history and successful track record of delivering quality educational experiences for school food service managers and nutrition staff members.  Participants study with Nebraska Department of Education Nutrition Services’ program specialist and faculty from UNL.  The two-year program covers topics including nutrition, food safety, menu planning, supervision, marketing, farm to school, special diets, and cost control.  In addition, participants learn production skill and presentation techniques while improving their supervisory skills in hands-on food preparation laboratories.

Information and registration is available on the Nutrition Services website at: .  The cost for 2013 NTENT training is $600.  This includes tuition, breakfast and lunch, room (double occupancy), and all materials.  An additional fee of $80 will be charged to participants who request a single room.  No refunds will be issued after April 30, 2013 and a $20 late fee will be added to applications postmarked after April 15th.

Participants, who complete both the Introductory and Intermediate course over 2 years, will be eligible for Level II Certification with the School Nutrition Association (SNA).  Certification also requires the Healthy Edge course which is completed independently, online through SNA for an additional fee.  Information on how to complete the online Healthy Edge course will be provided to each approved registration in the Introductory Step acceptance letter.

Once the registration is received and approved, each participant will receive a follow-up acceptance letter with more information and details about preparing for the NTENT one-week training.
