Need Your TABC Certificate?
A seller-server training program helps new and current alcohol servers keep up to date on laws and regulations that govern the sale of alcohol in the State of Texas. While it is not an official requirement to serve alcohol in Texas, most employers will require you to complete a TABC course before you are allowed to work.
This TABC Seller-Server Training Course is modeled after the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Code and has been approved by the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission. It is periodically updated to stay current with the Beverage Code and to improve quality. Our course is available in English and Spanish.
What is the TABC (Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission)?
The TABC is the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission. This is the agency in charge of the administration of the Alcoholic Beverage Code in the state of Texas. As such, TABC certification is an important step for anyone who hopes to work in the food and beverage industry where alcoholic drinks will be sold. While certification is not required by the state, it is often a requirement of employment. So, you may need to complete your TABC certification before you can start work, or you might decide to pursue it before going on interviews to make yourself more attractive as a candidate.

A TABC CERTIFICATE- A VALUABLE SIGN OF ACCOMPLISHMENT
Anyone who works in a place that serves alcohol, such as a restaurant, bar, food truck, or convenience store, should hold a TABC Certificate to show they understand the laws regarding alcohol sales. If you would like to know alcohol laws so that you can better protect yourself against legal repercussions, this training will be valuable for your job.
HOW THIS COURSE WORKS
Each lesson contains detailed information on the topic and fun exercises. The lessons have an optional voice over that will read the lesson out loud. After reviewing lesson materials, a 5 question quiz at the end will test what you have learned. Once you’ve completed all 4 lessons, you can go through the final review and take the final exam. You must score a passing grade of 70% to receive your TABC Certificate.
The TABC Course is designed to be completed at your own pace. However, you must complete each lesson before advancing to the next. All training must be completed within 6 months of registering. Each lesson can be reviewed in 15 minutes or less. Quizzes should take 5 minutes each.
What Does TABC Certification Mean?
A seller/server training course like the one offered here will allow you to be designated as a Responsible Training TABC Certificate Recipient. That means a couple of things. First, for your employer or potential employer, it means you have gone through the training needed to understand the basics of how the laws and rules work that govern the sale of alcohol in Texas. That is important, as only using employees with TABC certification can help protect the business from some potential liabilities.
In addition, you’ll be better prepared to do your job and serve customers appropriately and safely. Many different situations can come up while working in a server-seller role, and you might not have the knowledge needed to deal with those circumstances if you didn’t bother to complete the training process. So, whether it is required by your employer or not, taking the time to do TABC certification online is a smart move.
Why is TABC Certification Important?
Going through a program to obtain a TABC certificate will give you the opportunity to learn the various laws and restrictions that apply to serving alcohol in the state of Texas. There are legal obligations held by businesses and their employees when serving alcohol. If you were to go into an employment situation without the right training on this point, you might unknowingly make mistakes that could put people and the business at risk. Fortunately, but going through a simple, user-friendly course like the one available here, you can arm yourself with knowledge and report to the job with confidence.
How Long Does It take To Do Your TABC?
If you are trying to fit this training into your busy schedule, we have good news – you won’t need to commit hours and hours of study time to this process. With our training, you can work at your own pace and go through each of the four lessons plus the final review and exam as you are ready and have time available. You have up to six months from the date of registration to complete this program.
With that said, if you are in a hurry and need to complete it quickly, you can set aside some time and do the work in a single day. Roughly 20 minutes will be required for each lesson and quiz, and there are four of those to complete. Then, you’ll need to complete the final review and exam process. So, with some time set aside to focus on the task, this can be completed in a day and you will be finished with your TABC certificate.
