New! Professional Standards Training Guidelines for SNA Members


The School Nutrition Association has developed new recommended training guidelines to help SNA members and SNA state affiliates implement annual training required for USDA Professionals Standards. The guidelines are available free as an exclusive benefit for SNA members. Included in these guidelines are:

  • USDA Professional Standards Learning Objectives, organized by key area and linked to specific codes
  • A handy grid designed by SNA, which includes the USDA Professionals Standards coded topics (organized by key area), along other popular training topics that could count toward professional standards, listed with the relevant coding.
  • A sample training tracking grid for conferences and other meetings.

Since State Agencies ultimately monitor compliance during the 3 year Administrative Review, SNA encourages operators and SNA state affiliates to direct questions or concerns to their respective State Agencies for clarification purposes.
Stay tuned for more tools and resources from SNA on Professional Standards. If you are attending SNA’s annual conference in Salt Lake City, be sure to attend one of the four sessions covering this important topic. .
