Credentialing

SNA established the School Nutrition Specialist (SNS) Credentialing Program in 1997 to enhance the professional image of school nutrition professionals, elevate professional standards and enhance individual performance.

The SNS Credential is a mark of excellence and achievement that reflects what it takes to manage school nutrition programs in today’s challenging climate. The SNS Credentialing Exam evaluates candidates’ knowledge and skills required to perform specific job activities related to managing or directing school nutrition programs.

With professional standards from USDA on the horizon, it’s never been more important to invest in training for yourself and your staff! Achieving the SNS credential will give you a valuable head start to prepare yourself for professional standards from USDA – and investing in SNA’s Certificate in School Nutrition and the SNS Credentialing Program for your staff will give them a leg up as well!
