Training Available in Nutrition Field


The tourist season is quickly approaching. Along with it come opportunities for employment in the nutrition field. Restaurants, hotel dining halls, and even hospitals will need more workers when an influx of visitors comes to the Eastern Shore this summer. Be ready with the training to make yourself stand out during an interview and capture one of those jobs for you.

Sussex Tech Adult Division is offering a 60-hour Nutrition course starting on April 2 that teaches about human nutritional needs, food groups, and the nutritional benefits of various foods. It is designed for a variety of professions, not just hospitality, but nursing homes and hospitals. Students will learn about the USDA food pyramid guidelines and health problems associated with poor nutrition. Course includes field trips to a neighboring hospital to “shadow” employees delivering meals to patients in an institutional setting. Upon completion of the course, students are prepared to take the National Restaurant Association’s ServSafe Certification Exam. Cost of the exam is included in the course fee.

Cost of the course is $649. It meets Monday and Wednesday nights from April 2 until June 18 from 6-9 p.m.
