This Illinois Food Handlers Card Training holds the ANSI food handler training program accreditation (ASTM e2659-2015) and is approved for use in Illinois by the Illinois Department of Public Health.
The purpose of the Food Handlers Card Training program is to prepare food handlers to enter the workforce by providing the required food safety information as specified by regulations of the workers’ state or local government.
