About this Course

If you’re applying to become an Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) manager, the District of Columbia mandates that you complete an approved alcohol awareness training. Our on-premises course satisfies this requirement. 

Moreover, this course is valuable for anyone working at a bar or restaurant who need to learn the laws for responsibly selling and serving alcohol.  

Within the training, you’ll learn techniques for checking ID cards, preventing the sale of alcohol to minors, handling intoxicated customers, and marketing alcoholic beverages. 

To pass the course and earn your certificate, you must score at least 70% on the final exam.
