Alcohol-Server Training New Course Offering

In an effort to meet the growing needs in the hospitality industry in and around the Town of Addison, Brookhaven College has added Alcohol Server-Seller certification courses this fall.  The Town of Addison, has more than 170 restaurants and 22 hotels, many of which serve alcohol.  Every two years, bartenders, wait staff and other employees who sell or serve alcohol are required by the Texas Alcohol Beverage Commission to complete a four-hour training program.

Students learn how to recognize minors, the physical affects of alcohol, as well as factors affecting intoxification and when and how to intervene with a customer.  The course also covers the laws and penalties for serving minors and over-serving any customer.  Upon successful completion of the course, students receive a two-year Alcohol Seller-Server certification from the TABC.

There are several offerings for the course throughout the fall semester both mornings and evenings, weekdays and weekends.  The cost of the course is only $25.  For more information about the dates and times for the classes, contact the Corporate and Continuing Education Division of Brookhaven College at 972-860-4600.
