ABC Server Permit
Attend our premier Tennessee ABC Server Permit class in a Real Bar setting to receive your 5 Year Server Permit to serve alcohol as a server or a bartender.
The State of Tennessee requires all servers and bartenders who serve alcohol to attend an approved responsible alcohol program to receive a State-issued Alcohol Beverage Commission Server Permit. This permit is good for 5 years.
Don’t attend a boring class when you can learn in a REAL BAR atmosphere simulating real life situations to receive your ABC Server Permit. Our class is fun using VIDEOS and interaction with other students instead of listening to an instructor read for 5 long hours or having yourself read for 5 hours to receive your permit.
Most programs are only approved to serve alcohol in Tennessee while our program is recognized NATIONWIDE. We teach the TIPS Program, (Training for Intervention Procedures) which is the global leader in education and training of responsible alcohol service having trained over 4 million participants over the last 35 years. Not only do you get your 5 YEAR ABC Permit to serve alcohol in Tennessee but our program is recognized in in all 50 states and also in over 40 countries. So bottom line you receive your ABC Server Permit to serve alcohol but you also receive a TIPS Certification card by attending our program. Some bars, restaurants, and hotels require you to not only have your ABC Permit but also to be TIPS Certified to work there.
After signing up for our class you will need to go online and fill out an application with the Alcohol Beverage Commission and pay a $20.00 State Fee for them to process your card once you’ve successfully completed our class. Upon completion of your online application you will receive an RLPS record number that you will bring to your scheduled class. We will provide instructions to make this process easy for you. You will be required to complete this process on an actual computer using a valid email address. Tablets and smart phones will not work so you must be on an actual computer!!!
