School Nutrition Team Training



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.
