All establishments which serve food must have one certified person on the premises at all times. In order to obtain a new FSSMC Certificate, you must complete an eight hour ServSafe® IDPH approved course and pass an exam accredited under the standards developed and adopted by the Conference for Food Protection with a score of 75% or better. This course, instructed by I Food Manager (IFM), covers up-to-date information on safe food handling, preparation, food storage, personal hygiene, and the prevention of food borne illnesses. Completion of this course does not guarantee you will pass the exam. Students are advised to utilize any study materials provided before attending class.
