With the SMART methodology being increasingly used as the standard for organizations wishing to undertake nutrition and mortality surveys, finding appropriately qualified survey personnel is a constant struggle. The Global Pool of SMART Master Trainers is an initiative developed by ACF-Canada to increase the number of qualified staff members trained in SMART. Senior nutritionists or survey managers interested in becoming SMART Master Trainers will work with GNC lead agencies and develop institutional expertise in SMART. They will also serve as the go-to for trainings conducted by both their agency and NGO partners.
Senior nutritionists or survey managers interested in becoming SMART Master Trainers will work with GNC lead agencies and develop institutional expertise in SMART.
A SMART Master Trainer would need to attend a survey manager level SMART training, and then co-facilitate 2-3 SMART trainings while being mentored throughout this process by the ACF-CA SMART staff and members of the SMART TAG. ACF-CA will keep Master Trainers abreast of key methodological advancements and familiarize them with the most up-to-date training materials and tools in SMART.
If you or your agency is interested in joining the Global Pool of SMART Master Trainers, please contact ACF-CA:
