Ford County Public Health Department Hosting Food Service Sanitation Manager Certification Course Taught by Parkland Community College
The Center for Disease Control (CDC) estimates that roughly 1 in 6 Americans (48 million people) get some form of foodborne illness each year. Many of these illnesses are acquired in food establishments, like restaurants.
The State of Illinois requires food services establishments to have at least one Certified Food Protection Manager on premises during operational hours. This person is responsible for overseeing the food handling and preparation process to prevent the occurrence of foodborne illness.
Individuals can succeed in the restaurant industry by earning a Food Service Sanitation Manager Certification. By attending the course, persons equip themselves with valuable knowledge, a solid understanding of food safety, and keep customers, employers, and employees safe and successful.
