Orientation for Nutrition Employees (O.N.E.)

​​​​​What is Orientation for Nutrition Employees (O.N.E)?

This comprehensive, instructor-led training provides 30 credit hours of training for new School Nutrition employees. The training consists of six (6) “modules” inclusive of training materials, activities, and assignments about basic school nutrition topics. The O.N.E. lessons were developed to be taught in sequence from the Introduction to the Wrap Up. Most lessons are 30 minutes, and a few are up to 60 minutes in length. These are recommended times to be spent per lesson. 

School Nutrition Directors can decide how to provide this training in their districts. O.N.E. is designed to be taught in a classroom setting; however, some districts have been able to do virtual meetings to deliver the lessons. Some activities need to be completed by the school employees, with their manager's assistance. 

This training meets the Georgia State Board of Education Rule (160-5-6-.01: Statewide School Nutrition Program) that requires all new employees to complete within the first full year of employment, training in: program goals and philosophy, human relations and service skills, safe and sanitary food handling, and first aid.
