Food Safety Manager and Food Handler courses meeting Illinois requirements are now available…


Under Illinois law all food handlers who are not already a Food Sanitation Manager must be certified within 30 days after employment and every 3 years thereafter.  Food Safety Managers must now take a course and pass an ANSI and Illinois approved certification exam every 5 years. You can complete both the Food Handler course and the Food Safety Manager course online, at your own convenience and on your own time schedule.  All you need is a computer and internet connection.
