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.

NEW Resource: Getting Started with USDA's Child Nutrition Program is a self-guided tutorial for school nutrition personnel who are new to their position within a school that has established participation in USDA School Meals. 
In addition to this e-learning resource, we also offer a two-day training called Great Beginnings Academy. In 2023, we will offer this in-person training twice, once in July and again in August.

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.
This training opportunity is prioritized for Food Service Directors and Managers hired within the last 12 months.
There will be two separate opportunities at the School Nutrition Summer 2023 Training classes to attend this training, each lasting one and half days. This training class will be dedicated to providing an overview of all critical areas for those new to food and nutrition management roles 
More information for the next session will be released in Spring 2023.
