Successfully completing this proctored food licensing test (after completion of an approved 8 hour course) provides the Certified Food Protection Manager (CFPM) for Illinois.  It is also needed for the FSSMC (Food Service Sanitation Manager’s Certificate) license.  A person-in-charge with these credentials is required to be on-site when food is prepared/served in Illinois and Chicago.   Our CFPM testing program also meets the public health department requirements, although 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 can be conveniently completed on the above Saturday at the Mariott Chicago Medical Center, 625 South Ashland Avenue in Chicago. Located nearby the CTA pink and blue lines, discounted parking is available at the hotel.
