SNA Certificate Program – Professional Growth is Now More Attainable

SNA’s Certificate in School Nutrition Program has expanded to 4 Levels! We have launched a new Level 2 Certificate to bridge the large jump in training requirements between Level 1 and the old Level 2. The goal of the new Level 2 is to provide members with a more realistic professional growth path.

What Does This Mean for Current Certificate Holders?

LEVEL 1. There are no changes for Level 1 Certificate holders, but we recommend that you take advantage of this new bridge level and check out the requirements for Level 2. The new Level 2 requires 46 hours, which is considerably less than the current 86 hours.

OLD LEVEL 2 and 3. If you had an existing Level 2 or Level 3 certificate, your certificate has been automatically renamed Level 3 and Level 4 respectively. This is a name change only and does not impact your renewal requirements. You can download an updated certificate from
