SNA Certificate Program: Changing Levels

Certificants may move from one level to another by earning the additional academic requirements or key area training required for the next level.

  • College courses can be used regardless of how many years ago they were taken
  • Certificates of completion can date no further than five years back
  • Documents used to meet the initial certificate program level cannot be used to move up to another level
  • with the exception of the 8 hour Core Course in Food Safety & Sanitation (taken in the last 5 years)
