ABC Permit Class

The State of Tennessee requires all servers, bartenders and managers who serve alcoholic beverages to attend a 5-hour state certified alcohol awareness class in order to receive a 5 year TABC server permit.

Our ABC trainers teach the state-approved TopShelf Server Permit training program. Upon completion of the 5-hour ABC course, servers are eligible to receive their ABC server permit upon approval from the Tennessee Alcoholic Beverage Commission.
