Under the Food Service Sanitation Code, the Illinois Department of Public requires all food establishments to be supervised by a certified Food Service Sanitation Manager during hours of operation. 

This is a two-day course and participants must attend both classes. The certification exam will take place on the second day of classes. Please bring a valid photo ID to the exam. 

The class will be taught by Extension Nutrition & Wellness Educator, Lisa Peterson and provides the minimum classroom work to prepare for the National Certification Examination. Topics include foodborne illnesses, safe food handling, cooking and storage, employee health and hygiene, facility safety and maintenance, cleaning and sanitization. Certificates need to be renewed every five years.

You will get an hour lunch on the first day of class, and half hour lunch on the second day. The fee for this course includes the textbook, class materials and exam.
