ABSEC LLC is a Louisiana owned and Louisiana operated small business. The Louisiana ATC is the governing body for Alcohol and Tobacco and provides oversight, licensing and certification across the state. They are also responsible for enforcement and governance. We have been an approved and authorized online training provider since 2012 and remain in good standing. As an authorized ATC Vendor, we take our responsibility very seriously and strive to offer the most complete, thorough and accurate training and certification.
Our first goal is to properly educate students on the safe and proper handling, sale and service of alcohol and tobacco products. We are part of your community and want to help Louisiana continue to grow and prosper.
ABSEC is also the creator of the ATC Bouncer Certification and has been instrumental in providing training, course content and oversight assistance throughout the years. The Louisiana ATC considers ABSEC staff as the subject matter experts in ABO Security.
Based in New Orleans, ABSEC staff continues to stay in close contact with the many nightclubs and bars in the area to make sure the information we offer is accurate, current and relevant. As major events occur, we usually send in a representative to work with the bar staff to determine how to improve policies, practices and procedures, while maintaining the highest standards of professionalism to increase the safety of the staff and patrons alike.
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.
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. ABSEC is proud to offer 24/7 online certification for both the server and security certifications.
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.
The alcohol server’s certificate is good for four years, but must be renewed in the manner it was received. (Full recertification by taking the course and passing the test)
Bourbon Street in New Orleans is famous for the atmosphere that has brought generations down to drink and revel with abandon.
