Food service sanitation manager course

PRINCETON — A one-day education course to meet the requirements for renewing a current food service sanitation manager certificate will be offered on April 30 from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the Bureau County Health Department.

A minimum of five hours is required by the Illinois Department of Public Health for renewal of a certificate prior to expiration of a current certificate. This is the last five-hour refresher course offered before it changes to the new eight-hour course and exam. Food service sanitation manager certificates with expiration dates between now and Oct. 31, may take this refresher course and renew their certificate any time prior to July 1.

Certificates with expiration dates between Nov. 1 and June 30, 2015, can take a refresher course prior to July 1, as long as it is not sooner than one year prior to their expiration date.

Certificates with expiration dates on July 1, 2015, or after are not eligible to take the five-hour refresher class and will be required to take an eight-hour class and exam in order to re-certify prior to your expiration date.

Non-refundable Fees are $55, and payment is necessary at time of registration to guarantee a seat in class.

Register at the health department from 9 a.m. to noon and from 1 to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. Registration forms can be downloaded from the health department’s website at bpchd.org.

Lunch is on your own. Bring photo identification and current food service sanitation manager’s certificate. If a person’s certificate is expired, they will not be allowed to take this course.
