Methods to protect your liquor license
The Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission strongly feels that trained sellers, servers, and managers are better able to identify and prevent sales of alcoholic beverages to minors, intoxicated persons, and non-members of a private club. Because of this belief, the agency has certified courses for seller/server training. These courses are provided by certified private businesses or retailers for their own employees whose curriculum has been reviewed and approved by the TABC and whose trainers are also certified. These courses cover the laws applicable to the sales or service of alcoholic beverages to minors, intoxicated persons, and non-members of a private club. The courses also teach techniques to identify these persons and prevent sales to them. Individuals who successfully complete an approved program are issued certificates and licensees or permittees could, under certain terms, receive a restrained administrative case.
