The University of Illinois Extension will be offering the state mandated Certified Food Protection Managers class and exam in Effingham next month. Those who need the certification or need to renew have a registration deadline for the class coming up.
Lisa Peterson is a Nutrition and Wellness Educator with the Extension. She says participants will be taken through the course content they need and take the exam over a two-day period.
Peterson says you can no longer just renew your certification, you must take the class every five years to be able to renew.
To register, you can call the Effingham County Extension office. The pre-registration deadline is June 1st.
