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 Certification is designed to encourage profitable, responsible, and legal alcohol sales and service.
By July 1, 2018, all on-premise alcohol servers (and those required to check identification for alcohol service) will be mandated to take BASSET. Click on Required Training Dates for the law’s effective date by county. Please note, there are also several municipal and county liquor licensing authorities who currently have established specific training requirements as a condition for employment in a liquor establishment. Owners, managers, and sellers/servers must check Local Ordinances for training requirements. It is the responsibility of all Illinois liquor retailers to be aware of state liquor laws, rules and regulations, and local ordinances.
