Security training in Louisiana has taken another step forward in making our retail alcohol establishments a safer, more enjoyable place to be.  Pursuant to recent legislation, all alcohol beverage outlet security personnel as defined by Louisiana law must now attend certification training by an approved provider. This certification must be current and is valid for four years.

ABSEC is proud to offer this required training and certification throughout the State of Louisiana.  Take this course online immediately by clicking on ENROLL.

Remember that both the Security Certification course and the Responsible Vendor Server course are required for those personnel serving in a capacity where they may be called upon to respond to disturbances.   For more information about this law and related Louisiana statutes, please visit the Alcohol Tobacco Control at

Although commonly referred to as bouncer or nightclub security training and certification, this program can benefit any employee or owner of a bar, nightclub or other alcoholic beverage outlet (ABO) by preparing them to respond to disturbances in a controlled and “scripted” way.  A basic understanding of Louisiana laws and related criminal and civil liability laws will assist in making important decisions regarding what to do as well as what not to do in a given situation.

The use of force or violence in defense of one’s self or in the defense of others is discussed as it relates to Louisiana law and the responsibilities and accountability shouldered by those in the service industry.  To be clear:  Force should always be a LAST resort, but there are times when reasonable force is required to reduce the danger in a situation and restore safety for staff and patrons.  This course will offer suggestions for developing humane restraint policies and procedures that comport with criminal and civil guidelines.
