Fastest and most comprehensive food handler training course I've taken.

By: Blaze on Jul 5, 2023

I've had to take the illinois food handler test more times than I can remember and I always dread having to renew it. This certificate is quick and concise. Seriously, I was done in under 20 minutes. If you already know all the information from years in the restaurant industry you can pretty much head straight to the test (thank you 2x speed button!).

Would 100% recommend

By: Aunalisa on Mar 7, 2023

The content was delivered with short and engaging videos that simply summarized the key information. The test questions were clearly asked and covered all important material. The program ran perfectly on my computer and took no longer than the described course duration.
