New York Alcohol Training and Certification

If you are a server or seller of alcohol in the state of New York, you are at the correct website for receiving your official New York Awareness Training Program (ATAP) certification.

Responsible alcohol certification for servers is not yet mandatory by New York state law. However, many large companies are now requiring any employee serving or selling alcohol to the public to be certified by a state-recognized responsible alcohol program.

Currently, this is the only online alcohol certification course that has been approved in New York that meets the requirements of the New York Division of Alcohol Beverage Control and the New York State Liquor Authority (NYSLA).

Our course is produced by Learn2Serve, the largest online alcohol training provider. The PBSA, Inc. Learn2Serve Program is approved by the NYSLA through the Empire State Restaurant and Tavern Association Program # AT001.

It is 100% online, secure and takes approximately 3 hours to complete. To better assist you, we offer 24/7 customer support. This makes taking the course online more convenient for you!

Upon successful completion of the course, you will be able to print a certificate immediately. The cost is $16.95. Your certification is valid for 3 years.

Who Should Be Certified?

Every person in the state of New York who is a server or seller of alcoholic beverages should take this course. This would include:

  • Bartenders
  • Bar Backs
  • Servers
  • Managers
  • Cashiers at Grocery, Liquor and Convenience Stores
  • Business Owners

In New York, responsible alcohol service training provides mitigating benefits: The New York State Liquor Authority (NYSLA) will consider training a mitigating factor if, at the time of violation, the person who committed the violation held a valid certificate of completion or renewal from a certified alcohol training awareness program provider and the licensee diligently implemented and complied with the training program.
