Successfully completing this proctored food licensing test provides the FSSMC (Food Service Sanitation Manager’s Certificate) license. This license is required for at least one food safety manager, who is present on-site when food is prepared/served in Illinois and Chicago. Public health department licensing is called by different names in Indiana (Certified Food Handlers License ) and Wisconsin (Food Manager Certification).
Participants can choose either the ServSafe or National Registry (NR FSP) national licensing exam, which comply with the ANSI Conference for Food Protection (CFP) and are accepted by most local & state licensing boards to meet public health requirements for food safety licensing. Those completing the course on-line or retesting can complete the in-person exam as part of Certified Food Safety Program’s one day program.
Testing is provided at the Oak Lawn Hilton Hotel, 9333 S Cicero Avenue (free parking in the hotel lots). An optional review begins at 2:30 p.m.. The test is administered at 3:30 p.m..
