Illinois Food Service Sanitation Manager Training Course
The Illinois Department of Public Health requires that all food service establishments that prepare
and serve food to have a certified food service manager on the premises at all times food is being handled. As of July 1st, 2014 new employees must have their certification within 30 days.
In order to receive this Food Service Sanitation Manager Certification
(FSSMC) from the state of Illinois, the employee must take an approved 8 hour training course. The Illinois requirement for this course was shortened from 15 hours to only 8 hours as of July 1st, 2014.
The course and exam is provided by 360training (Learn2Serve) in partnership with PBSA.
Certificate holders may also renew their license by completing an approved food safety 8 hour
course prior to the expiration of their certification as a part of the continuing education clause. With this
procedure, you do NOT need to retake the proctored exam for renewal.
The Learn2Serve Food Safety Management Principles Certification Training course provides training only to fulfill
the 8 hour Food Service Sanitation Manager Certification (FSSMC) Course requirement in Illinois.
