Certification Types

Seller/Server Certification

This training is available through several TABC-approved seller training schools. Most schools offer online coursework, and you can get your certification in just a few hours.

Topics include:

  • Laws and rules related to alcohol sales.
  • Intervention techniques to prevent sales to minors and intoxicated customers.

While TABC seller/server certification is not required under state law, it is strongly recommended. Many retailers require certification before employment, and TABC encourages this.

Hiring only TABC-certified employees gives employers protection from some liabilities under the Alcoholic Beverage Code. Read about the Safe Harbor law on our TABC Certification FAQs.

Texas Responsible Alcohol Delivery Certification

You can sign up for this training online through our Texas Responsible Alcohol Delivery (TRAD) page. This is the newest training TABC offers, and it covers similar topics to seller/server certification. However, this training focuses on the specific situations and regulations consumer delivery drivers will encounter.
