The Learn2Serve Illinois Food Handler Training Course (ANSI Accredited) covers food safety issues, regulations, and techniques to maintain a food-safe environment. It will help you to better understand how handling food correctly is required by law and how it improves safety and lowers cost as well.
This course is ANSI accredited and complies with ASTM e2695 standards. The course is recognized in most states and counties, but it is always best to check with your local authorities to be sure you complete any additional local registration, fees, or applications.
If you are in Utah, Florida, Ohio, or San Diego County, please look for our other courses for those areas. This course is not recognized for certification in Washington State, Oregon, or Clark County/Southern Nevada Health District, but is useful in preparing for the SNHD Test, and is valid in other parts of Nevada.
