SNP Sanitation Training

The manager at each foodservice site participating in USDA Child Nutrition Programs must attend initial and ongoing sanitation and food safety training. Administrative rules clarify that local agencies participating in USDA Child Nutrition Programs must also comply with the “red book,” North Dakota Requirements for Food and Beverage Establishments.

The manager may be referred to as the site manager, kitchen manager or lead worker in the foodservice and should be listed as the Lead Foodservice Worker (LFSW) on the online site application. Usually, there is only one LFSW per site. Some LFSW have educational backgrounds or training that may exempt them from taking the initial course.

Documentation (transcript and/or training certificate) allowing for exemption should be provided to our office.

A new LFSW will have up to six months from the start of duties to complete the initial 8 hour sanitation/food safety training (SAN). A course update/review (SANU) must be taken every five years after completing the initial course. Update courses will be provided at no cost by DPI at various locations across the state.

Fax or scan our office your certificate when you have completed the training. The fax number is (701) 328-9566. Make sure your school name is on the certificate. Scan certificates to dpicnfd@nd.gov.

On-Line Sanitation Update—3 Hour (SANU)

Lead food service workers, usually the manager, at each site are required to complete SanU every 5 years. If you need to renew, please view the training below. There are 5 questions imbedded in the presentation that must be answered. Send the answers to dpicnfd@nd.gov. If you have at least 4 out of 5 correct, we will send you a SanU certificate.
