Instructor’s Note About Manager Certification

Thanks for inquiring about Illini Training’s IDPH/ANSI-approved Food Service Sanitation Manager Certification Course. The course is available in English and Spanish.

There are three steps to getting an IDPH Food Service Sanitation Manager Certificate (FSSMC) through Illini Training:

1) Complete online delivery of the course ($85).

Note: If you’d rather sit in a classroom, traditional delivery of courses offered in your area can be found through the Illinois Department of Public Health.

2) Take an IDPH approved national certification exam *at* an IDPH approved testing site (minimum of $47).

3) Report exam score to IDPH and apply/pay for IDPH FSSMC ($36).

The course meets IDPH’s requirement for certification and is available in English or Spanish. Enrollment is open 24/7/365.

The course itself is done online and requires a DSL, Cable, Wireless, or other Broadband (high-speed) connection. This course does NOT support dial-up modem connections.

Course fee is $85.00 paid via Paypal. You do not need to have a Paypal Account to pay with Paypal.

A personal or business email is required for course communication. Upon registration and receipt of payment for the course you will receive an automated email; within 24 business hours of that email you will receive a personal e-mail from me to confirm your access to a high-speed internet connection AND to confirm that your email system will accept correspondence from me …please configure your spam filter to accept messages from my email address.

Within 24 hours of replying to my personal email I will send you the course packet via e-mail, with directions on how to launch and complete the course online.

The course consists of 15 lessons; each lesson has a quiz, scores downloading to a database housed on the Internet. You have access to the course 24/7…enabling you to work at your own pace, whenever time is available.

A maximum of 4 months is given to complete the course. The deadline date for course completion will be based on the day your course is processed and will be noted in the course packet emailed to you.

Upon completion of the course, and return of required paperwork, I will provide options for taking a fee-based IDPH/ANSI-approved national certification exam near you. Upon passing the exam – and your score being reported to IDPH – it will cost $36, payable to IDPH, for receipt of your Illinois certificate.
