Course Requirement
The food code in Illinois mandates the completion of an approved eight-hour course in addition to the proctored licensing exam. The City of Chicago Department of Public Health requires this course and exam for the Chicago Food Service Sanitation Manager Certificate (FSSMC) license as well.  Many managers find it easier to attend a class in person to get ready for the licensing test. However, if you take the on-line course Certified Food Safety Programs offers, you can audit this in-person class before the exam.
Licensing Examination
You will complete the program with the ServSafe (National Education Foundation) proctored test. ANSI-CFP (American National Standards Institute – Council on Food Protection) – certifies the test as required by most state health departments(including Illinois, Wisconsin and Indiana).  The City of Chicago Department of Public Health also accepts this for their Food Service Sanitation Manager Certificate (FSSMC) licensing process.    The test may be taken with paper and pencil, or with a laptop computer.
