The food handler course is a license requirement for daycare providers in Illinois. This course was approved for the requirement, not too advanced, and for a good price. The children in my daycare and I thank you.

I feel that this program is one of the most comprehensive, innovative tool: when it comes to getting the knowledge into the minds of its employees. also allowing the individual employee to experience the application of the knowledge in real time ( if that makes since lol ) however I liked the process and had a good experience thank you very much. truly; Jasper Young wood field mail location Shamburg IL.
