Course Content (All Courses)
Our courses focus on the fundamentals of food service sanitation. Topics include:
- Food borne illness
- Personal hygiene
- Cross contamination
- Cleaning vs. sanitizing
- Current food safety issues
The format of our program was developed so that everyone learns the required information. This is accomplished by using a variety of teaching methods such as lecture, class discussion such as audio/visual aides, written materials, practice questions and demonstrations.
Our pass rate of the FSSMC exam is excellent. Successful completion of the course with a passing grade on the exam is our number one priority. We assess each participant’s understanding of the course material prior to the exam. Additional assistance is available for those requesting it.
There are changes to the Illinois FSSMC certification program. Beginning July 1, 2014 training hours for the FSSMC will be reduced to 8 hours of coursework, plus an exam.
