Do I need to get BASSET Certified?

As of July 1, 2018, all on-premises alcohol servers (and those required to check identification for alcohol service) are mandated to take BASSET.

Beverage Alcohol Sellers and Servers Education and Training (BASSET) is the State of Illinois' responsible beverage seller/server program. Under the licensing and regulatory auspices of the Illinois Liquor Control Commission, BASSET is designed to encourage profitable, responsible, and legal alcohol sales and service.

If you are an on-premises or off-premises alcohol beverage server — you need to get certified.

How long does the BASSET Course take?

The on-premises course takes approximately 4 hours to complete, and the off-premises course takes around 3 hours. Keep in mind that you can train at your own pace and start and stop as often as you like.
