360training.com/Learn2Serve.com has been approved by IDPH and the City of Chicago to offer the 8 hour training. We have also been accredited by the American National Standards Institute as having met the standards of the Conference for Food Protection to offer the National Food Manager Exam through Test Centers throughout Illinois and the City of Chicago. Our instructor, Lori Randall, is available to answer any questions regarding course material or reporting your credits to the state.
We ask that you contact Lori Randall at firstname.lastname@example.org
when you have completed both the training course and the exam (which would need to have been administered through a test center in front of a proctor). The State of Illinois and the City of Chicago require you to pass with a 75% or better in order for them to recognize that you have successfully completed the exam. The instructor will need proof of completion of both the course and the exam, along with your mailing address, the county associated with your mailing address, and your social security number. We advise you to attach a copy of both certificates to your email notification to her. You may also share your additional information by fax at 773-821-6910.
