The Built Environment Assessment Training Institute has launched a free online course to learn how to assess the built environment for physical activity. as well as one on assessing the nutrition environment. Participants will learn about the main variables found in most physical activity-focused built environment audit tools, with a more in-depth look at a few specific tools (IMI, ANC, PEDS, PARA, EAPRS & PEAT).  Participants will also learn how to customize the tools and train others to conduct assessments. The courses are geared towards researchers, practitioners, students, community advocates and anyone else with an interest in learning how to conduct audits of the built environment.
