Overview of our training

Our program gives people selling and serving alcoholic beverages an overview of alcohol sales, regulations, and techniques for recognizing a minor. Alcohol vendors will better understand how selling alcohol reduces trouble and improves safety.
The best way for servers and bartenders to avoid facing criminal charges is to take the BASSET certification courseThis course provides employees with a thorough and detailed education on identifying underage customers and spot fake IDs whenever they may come across oneThe employee must determine when a minor is attempting to sneak by—failure to do so could cost them their jobs and could even result in the establishment losing its liquor licenseThat’s why many seller/server establishments will require this training before an employee ever serves alcohol on the jobThe state of Illinois now requires that anyone that serves, sells, or mixes alcohol in the state must complete an ILCC BASSET approved training course.

It’s the Law!

In the state of Illinois, establishments are not allowed to do any of the following during their Happy Hour:

  • Serving more than 2 drinks to a single person at a time
  • Offering drinks at a reduced price (i.e., “2 for 1” specials, or “$1 beers from 4 – 7 p.m.”)
  • Create “unlimited” drink specials during any period of time
  • Increase the amount of liquor provided in any cocktail
  • Host any game or contest of any kind in which a prize is given for the consumption of alcohol
Please note that any discounted prices on food or products must be at that price for the entire day, not just during a 2 to 3-hour windowTherefore, the concept of “Happy Hour” is relegated to just a small part of an entire day’s special and isn’t really a Happy Hour at all.
