CACFP Child Nutrition Professional Application


Thank you for applying for the CACFP Child Nutrition Professional Certification Program! Please complete this form, attach your documentation and make your payment. 

Submitting the application fee does not guarantee approval and is non-refundable.

For New Applications: 

Please allow 2-4 weeks for your application to be processed. If your application is incomplete, you will receive an email identifying additional documentation needed to earn your certification and you will have 30 days to submit those needed documents to NCA. If NCA receives your documents after the 30-day period, you will need to resubmit the entire application and pay the application fee again.

For Renewal Applications: 

Please complete the CEU worksheet to meet the renewal requirements. NCA will check proof of CEUs via a random audit. Only those chosen for the audit will be required to send in documentation of CEUs earned. If you are selected for an audit, a notification to send CEU documentation to NCA will be included in your renewal notice.
