A typical Illinois Food Service Sanitation Manager course held in a classroom lasts
15 to 20 hours, costs $125 to $175 and is frequently held on weekends.
For those of us who work in the food and beverage industry, this is our
busiest time and difficult to schedule the day off.
Taking the Illinois FSSMC course online allows you to take the course on your own schedule and at your own pace. If
you didn't understand part of the video, you may replay it to see it again and get the answers. This is hard to do
in a large class of 20 to 30 people when an instructor is already speaking on the next subject.
In today's economy, money is tight, gasoline is expensive and it makes sense to eliminate unnecessary trips when
Taking our online Illinois Food Safety Manager course allows you to save this time and expense.
How to Take the Illinois Food Service Sanitation Manager Exam
The State of Illinois does not allow the final exam to be taken online. The final exam must be
taken in a proctored (classroom) environment.
The final certification examination is not included and is handled separately. The Illinois Instructor for this
Training course, Lori Randall, will report your training and handle the state required paperwork. You must take and
pass the state examination with a score of at least 75 percent and pay the required certificate fee to the Illinois
Department of Public Health (IDPH) to obtain your FSSMC in Illinois.
Once you complete the course, you must fax a copy of your completion certificate to 773-821-6910. A Permission to
Take Exam form will be faxed or emailed to you. One you have this form, please contact the local Illinois
Department of Public Health office (see list below) to set up an appointment to take the exam. You will need to
take the Permission to Take Exam letter, a copy of the course completion certificate, and a picture ID.
