  • Verification Review

  • Applying for a Provision 2/3 Base Year  
  • Operating a Provision 2/3 Non-Base Year
    • This web-based training and worksheet is REQUIRED each year for all SFAs who are operating non-base years for Provision 2 or 3.  SFAs must score an 80% or higher to complete the training requirement and receive a Certificate of Completion.  Completed training worksheets are due to ADE prior to the first serving day.  The training will review procedures unique to non-base year operations such as claiming and counting procedures and the verification report.  (Please note, if you are NOT operating a non-base year, you are NOT required to complete this web-based training).
