ICN Summer Institute in Vermont

Vermont currently has very low registration numbers for several of their in-person Child Nutrition Summer Institute classes being offered by Institute for Child Nutrition (ICN) trainers.  They need to have minimum numbers for the ICN trainers to travel to Vermont, so they are opening these classes up to attendees from neighboring states to fill up the classes.  All sessions are free and will be held in Montpelier, Vermont.  These sessions count towards USDA’s annual professional standards training requirements for the school nutrition programs.  To reserve a spot in any of these sessions, please register now.

  • Writing, Updating, and Revising a HACCP-Based Food Safety Plan for Schools – Monday & Tuesday 8/14 - 15, 8:30 AM - 5:00 PM, Wednesday, 8/16 8:30pm-12:30pm (this is a 2.5 day course)  - National Life Campus
  • Menus of Flavor - Latin American Cuisine, Tuesday, 8/15 - 8:30 AM - 12:30 PM, Montpelier High School
  • Food Allergies for School Nutrition Managers and Staff, Friday, 8/18 - 8:30 AM - 12:30 PM, National Life Campus
  • Norovirus in Schools, Friday 8/18, 1:30 PM - 4:30 PM, National Life Campus

You will notice that there are also other in-person sessions on the registration page.  These sessions may include references to Vermont specific requirements and regulations, but school food service staff from other states are welcome to register for any of these other sessions except for ServSafe.  ServSafe is only open to staff working in Vermont Child Nutrition Programs.
