Renewal of Illinois FSSMC

Effective July 1st, 2014 the Illinois Department of health required that anyone currently holding an Illinois Food Service Sanitation Manager Certification (FSSMC) renew their certification by taking an 8-hour food safety training course and passing an ANSI-CFP exam.

The IDPH no longer allows food safety manager to simply take a shorter course with a test for renewal purposes.

If you have previously been certified in Illinois and posses a Food Service Sanitation Manager Certification (FSSMC) certificate:

Renewal Procedure Effective July 1st, 2014 and Later:
  • Complete an 8-hour food safety manager training course

  • Then complete an ANSI-CFP examination with a score of 75% or above.
