Indiana Food Service Director Certificate Program 

The Indiana School Nutrition Association and the Indiana Department of Education have joined forces to create a program that will add value to the School Nutrition Profession in the state of Indiana. Further information about the program will be forthcoming and the ISNA and IDOE will begin marketing and promoting this valuable program to district Superintendents, School Business Officials, Human Resources departments, and others as an important recognition of Food Service Directors' knowledge and professional development.

Depending on previous training, completion can be possible within two years. Specific program course requirements will be forthcoming.
