ABOUT THE RESPONSIBLE VENDOR “Bar Card” COURSE
Those employees in the bar, restaurant, nightclub, casino, hotel or other industries that serve or sell alcohol and alcoholic beverages are required by the State of Louisiana to remain certified by the Responsible Vendor program. The certifications last four years and are monitored by the Alcohol Tobacco Control agency of Louisiana. Agents regularly visit establishments to insure compliance. Those without required server cards or security cards are given summonses to appear in court to answer to their violations. This certification is commonly called a “bar card” and is one of the first steps when applying to serve liquor in Louisiana. Some cities also require additional certification or registration such as Lafayette, New Orleans, Baton Rouge, Shreveport and others. Check with your local government agencies for additional information regarding this.
At ABSEC, we provide multiple methods of training and certification, including private courses, individual training, online training and customized training courses for all of your needs.
Attention to users’ needs and organizational policies place us ahead of our competitors. We have assembled a team of experts in this field who are more than able to provide the top level of instruction and consulting in this arena.
For those able to take our online course, we offer immediate certification as required by Louisiana State law. The server card is issued by the State of Louisiana, but a temporary certificate is issued upon completion of the course and test, giving our students immediate access to written record of attendance and completion.
ABOUT THE SECURITY COURSE
When you are hired as a security staff member to an A.B.O. , you assume liability and responsibility for the security of the patrons, staff and assets of the company. Many of the people hired for this purpose are selected solely because of their size and /or intimidation factor. When one thinks of the term “bouncer”, they immediately imagine a broad shouldered, overbearing behemoth of a man whose imposing stature quickly solves all conflicts.
In reality, the job requires discretion, tact, and exceptional communication skills. Many of these individuals are very professional and conduct themselves properly under any and all circumstances.
Some, however, do not. Because of lack of training, they place their establishment in a precarious liability situation. In today’s overly litigious society this is an unacceptable risk for the A.B.O. owner.
For the first time, a training course has been designed to provide professional training for the people who choose this profession. This is usually an entry-level position that may lead to future management or ownership of a bar, nightclub or A.B.O. because it encompasses so many aspects of efficiently running the business.
Long overdue, this course provides essential conflict management skills necessary to diffuse potentially dangerous or violent situations that sometimes occur in the bar and nightclub business. Employees will also learn a practical disturbance response continuum which guides their response to such situations. This course can greatly enhance staff credibility, while reducing civil and criminal liability, resulting in a better experience for customers.
ABSEC has assembled a team of expert instructors in the security industry and is home to the inventor and developer of the ABO security program that is in use today.
(Some refer to this training as the required Louisiana bouncer certification course. We refer to it as the “ABSEC” training and certification course)
