      Professional Alcohol Seller's Training   Alabama ABC Board Approved Responsible Vendor Training Course Provider.
  • The new 2013 edition  shipping  November 1, 2013. Several laws and regs have been added. The test and PowerPoint are the same. When you order new 2013 edition "Trainee Books" you can hole punch and use the exterior white book to replace the pages in your "Trainer's Kit" saving you the cost of a rebuy. See updates on page 5 (News and Contacts).
  •     Renewal Notice post card below: make sure to renew your Responsible Vendor Certification on line when you renew your ABC License annually.


     



                      ABC license style 
             
    All products authorized will now be listed on the same license (sheet of paper)with the same 9 digit license number. However, each product type will have a different prefix which is part of the number, making it 12 total digits. Such as 050 for off premise beer or 070 for off premise wine. The last RESPONSIBLE VENDOR prefix was 600. The new prefix is 610 if you have 1 license prefix (beer,wine or liquor) 620 if you have 2 different such as 050 Off Premise beer and 070 Off Premise wine. A Off Premise liquor store selling all 3 is a 011 and considered 1 prefix for all 3 as is a 020 restaurant selling all 3 types of alcohol. The ABC is no longer sending a gold medallion for new Responsible Vendor certification. They now reprint your ABC license with the 610 or 620 prefix.


    The ABC 200 Manufacturer license can't be Responsible Vendor certified. The RVP certification is for retail licensees. However, the 220 Brew Pub license can be ABC RVP certified because it also allows On Premise consumption.


    If your ABC license has had an ABC citation against it for underage sales within the last four years you will not be able to be certified as a Responsible Vendor until the citation comes off of the four year listing.  
 

The P.A.S.T. Professional Alcohol Seller's Training L.L.C. Alabama ABC approved Responsible Vendor Program is the most modern and up to date course of instruction available.

Instructional CD audio data disk is provided (not required by regulation but as an additional tool). Remember, "Face to Face" training is required.

Trainer's kits available for "In House" trainers which include a Driver's License booklet (not required by regulation but as an additional tool). Furnished thru an Anheuser-Busch CSR contract with certain Alabama Anheuser-Busch wholesalers.

Both On and Off Premise courses available.

All documentation, labels and laminated signage included.

We are an "In State Provider" not an "Out of State Provider with a cookie cutter class". There is not a minimum purchase, such a 10 book package as it is with some providers. Our instruction deals with Alabama laws, rules and regulations, serving and selling techniques and the identification of false and modified I.D.s. Our area trainers have over 150 years of combined experience in the alcohol industry in Alabama and are here in Alabama to serve you.                                                                                   Some providers charge up to $499 for you to become a Trainer and then $40 per Trainee. P.A.S.T. charges (0) for you to become a Trainer. You just buy a $40 Trainers Kit (including a Driver's License booklet, forms, labels and signs) and only $20 per trainee booklet which includes the Test and Employee Acknowledgement Statement.

We have been teaching this program since it began in 1990.

We have trained over twenty five thousand Servers, Sellers, Managers and "In House" Trainers for thousands of licensees across the state of Alabama.

Thanks for all of the help you’ve been to me over the past few years concerning the Responsible Vendor Program. It’s nice to be able to make one phone call to you about an alcohol applicant knowing that you’ll contact them promptly and schedule a training session. I really appreciate your professionalism and quick service and because of that, I always refer the applicants to you, exclusively.
