A career in the Food Service Industry requires many to obtain the Food Service Sanitation Manager Certification (FSSMC).  The FSSMC course is available at SRC and is taught by Wanda Adkins of I Food Manager (IFM).

Wanda teaches her class through stories, repetition, and plenty of humor.  Evaluation comments from her classes include: class was fun and informative… best class I have had in 10 years… instructor was GREAT… Wanda made a fun learning experience… I will remember so much more because of her funny tricks.

In Illinois, all establishments that serve food must have one certified person on the premises at all times. Effective July 1, 2014, in order to maintain your Illinois FSSMC Certificate, or 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. The FSSMC course available at SRC covers up-to-date information on safe food handling, preparation, food storage, personal hygiene, and the prevention of food borne illnesses. Successful completion includes a certificate issued by the Illinois State Department of Public Health (IDPH).  This course is offered monthly at various locations.
