The TABC (Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission) test is 25 questions long and covers Texas alcohol laws dealing with preventing intoxication, identifying minors, alcohol's affects on the body, law enforcement policy, and providing for the safety of intoxicated persons.
TABC certification is required for anyone selling or serving alcohol in the state of Texas including servers, store clerks, and bartenders.
The Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission is the state agency which enforces all alcohol server and alcohol seller laws and rules and administers the TABC certification test.
Anyone who has taken the seller training course is eligible to take the certification test. There is no minimum age requirement to take the certification test and there are no requirements regarding criminal history.
The Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission authorizes private companies to give seller training and administer the TABC certification test. The Commission monitors training programs to determine if the schools are presenting the programs as approved and certified by the TABC.
Make sure to verify that the seller training school you choose is valid by contacting TABC Seller Training at (512) 206-3420.
You'll be much more employable as nearly all alcohol related employers require a current TABC certification to be employed. To maintain certification you must attend the full seller training course every two years. There is no way to "test out" of the class, and there is not a different, shorter recertification class.
