ProServe Certification Course (Online)

ProServe Certification Course

ProServe is the Alberta Government’s mandatory alcohol server training program. Every person that serves alcohol in the province of AB must have this certificate.

When applying for jobs at bars and restaurants, one of the first questions you will be asked is; “Do you have your ProServe certificate?”. The goal of the ProServe Program is to inform you of your legal responsibilities when serving alcohol to customers. For example, if you a serve a customer 4 cocktails in 2 hours, he leaves the bar, drives away and gets into an accident, are you legally responsible in any way? The answer might surprise you.

The course gives you techniques you can use to prevent problems before they start, and covers topics such as: Warning signs of intoxication, Legal Liability, and how the laws are applied.

Creating and enforcing a Responsible Beverage Service Program to receive your ProServe Certificate, you will have to complete an open-book 30 question exam, and score 80%, (or 24 questions correct). If you choose, you can add the ProServe Certificate to your bartending program at checkout for an additional $35, and we will guide you through the process of completing the exam.

Establishments that employ non-certified workers can be issued a fine, liquor license suspension, or liquor license termination. Every establishment in AB will expect you to have completed your exam before applying for work as a bartender or server.
