About the Course

Our online TABC training course focuses on responsible alcohol sales in Texas and is intended for waiters, bartenders, cashiers, caterers, and anyone else that sells or serves alcohol. Upon completion of the course and test, you are immediately TABC certified and you can print or save your TABC certificate.

Most employers will require you to be TABC certified before you begin working. The TABC (Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission) strongly feels that trained sellers, servers, and managers are better able to identify and prevent sales of alcoholic beverages to minors, intoxicated persons, and non-members of a private club. Therefore, the TABC recommends that businesses make TABC seller server training mandatory for their employees who sell or serve alcohol through the 'Safe Harbor Act'.
