Overview of Training Programs
A wide range of high quality training opportunities is available for Child Nutrition Program personnel.  These include KSDE's Child Nutrition Management Academy, Administrative Update, Menu Planning classes, and Food Safety Basics classes. 

Additionally, a statewide system of Regional Training Cooperatives (RTCs) offers a wide variety of classes to personnel throughout Kansas.  Based on local needs and interests, regional coordinators select KSDE-developed classes to offer and make local arrangements.  KSDE provides class content, participant materials, trainers, online registration, invoicing, and publicity via e-mail notifications and this website.
