Course description

This bi-lingual (English/Spanish) childcare training is an informational and test prep session for the Servsafe Food Handler training. Successful completion of the online Servsafe training will satisfy the Illinois Department of Public Health/IDHS/DCFS requirement. This 1.5-hour informational session will provide an overview of the online registration, class content and evaluation process for obtaining a food handler certificate. After the informational session, providers will be emailed a link to the course content and assessment from Servsafe to earn certification. This opportunity is provided at no cost to you because childcare providers in our union won funding for provider trainings in our contract with the state.

“As a Licensed-Exempt Child Care Provider, the pilot METC apprenticeship program has helped me a lot. I have been able to complete all my classes and apply for the additional 20% increase while I was waiting to become licensed. I now know how the process works because of the information received in this program. I’m so grateful for these classes, and the time my mentor took to make sure I was on the right track. I really appreciate this program, and I hope other providers will get the opportunity and experience that I got from METC.”
