EUREKA, Ill. – Illinois regulations require food establishments to have at least one Certified Food Protection Manager (CFPM) on staff. University of Illinois Extension offers the Food Protection Manager Certification course and examination, which is required every 5 years.

Participants learn about basic food safety, personal hygiene, cross-contamination and allergens, time and temperature, and cleaning and sanitation.

The Certified Food Protection Manager class will meet on Tuesday, November 28 and Thursday, November 30 at the Woodford County Farm Bureau (117 W Center St #101, Eureka, IL) in room 101, the upstairs conference room.
