Are You Interested In Training or Developing Materials for NFSMI?
The mission of the National Food Service Management Institute (NFSMI) is to provide information and services that promote the continuous improvement of child nutrition programs. Every day the Institute strives to achieve its vision to be the leader in providing education, research, and resources to promote excellence in federally funded child nutrition programs.
One way NFSMI fulfills its mission and vision is to partner with experts in the field of child nutrition to deliver training and develop new resources.
If you have expertise in the successful operation of federally funded child nutrition programs - in the school or child care setting - NFSMI is looking for you!
To deliver training programs to child nutrition professionals across the country, NFSMI selects trainers based on their experience, education, and expertise. For additional information, see the presentation NFSMI Consultant Trainer Information.
The Institute provides support for its trainers and ensures they have the necessary tools to conduct workshops and seminars for NFSMI. Preferred trainers are paid a standard rate of $1,000.00 per training day and $300.00 per travel day. Travel expenses, such as airfare and meals, are reimbursed according to NFSMI's travel guidelines.
Like trainers, consultants are chosen to develop education and training materials based on their experience, education, and expertise. To develop resources for NFSMI, consultants may be asked to submit a proposal in response to a specific request outlining the details of a project.
There is no standard rate of compensation for resource development. Compensation is negotiated on a project by project basis, and contracts are issued for each individual project.
