School Nutrition Team Training

Overview

brain

Professional Development training is important to stay up-to-date and well-versed on various school nutrition subjects. Check out the topics below to learn more about the types of training offered by the School Nutrition Team.

Please note, DPI SNT is not an accredited provider for the Commission on Dietetic Registration (CDR) and therefore DPI SNT trainings cannot be used for Continuing Professional Education (CPE) credit for CDR. However, all DPI SNT trainings can be used towards professional standards hours, GOALS requirements, and SNA-WI CEUs. For SNA-WI CEUs, the training must be at least 60 minutes.

Announcements (SSO, ServSafe)

For most of our Wisconsin SFAs, operating the SSO is a relatively new experience. Serving meals while keeping students and staff safe during the global COVID-19 pandemic has kept you busy and we applaud how quickly you have adapted. We recognize the need for a training resource to cover the special rules and procedures of the SSO related to meal pattern flexibilities, point of service and the claiming process. Complete the modules of this self-guided e-learning course to gain a better understanding of the SSO. You may count this training towards professional standards hours, but it does not satisfy a specific GOALS requirement.

Virtual ServSafe Exams

The SNT is unable to provide in-person ServSafe training this summer and therefore cannot proctor the ServSafe exam. ServSafe has responded to the need for virtual exams by partnering with a third party, ProctorU, to provide online training and exam proctoring. By purchasing this ServSafe Manager course with Online Proctored Exam, individuals will take the online course at their own pace and have the ability to schedule the ServSafe exam at a time that is convenient for them. Participants are required to have either a laptop or computer enabled with webcam and microphone to assist ProctorU in establishing a secure testing environment. Unfortunately, SNT staff are unable to serve as ServSafe proctors for this virtual service. If you or any of your staff are interested in obtaining or renewing a ServSafe certificate this year, it is recommended to independently complete the course and exam in the safety of your own home or workspace. Questions regarding this new process should be directed to ServSafe Customer Care.

Great Beginnings Academy helps newly hired managers and directors get off to a great start while creating a network of supportive peers. The School Nutrition Team (SNT) explains USDA School Meals Programs requirements while introducing resources and sharing best practices. We accomplish this by hosting virtual sessions with specialists on our team.

This free training opportunity is limited to Food Service Directors hired within the last 12 months. View the 2020 GBA agenda to learn more about how the learning is structured. The SNT will host this opportunity again in Fall 2021.
