Civil Rights training must be completed annually by all staff who help administer a Child Nutrition Program. Program directors and administrators must train staff on organizational practices and requirements. This training is geared toward Child Nutrition Program sponsors and administrators or directors of organizations. While this training goes over what is required for Civil Rights training, it does not go specifically into organizational practices.
