The In-House Training Kit provides the tools for a certified member of staff to train other employees within a First class (on-premise) and Second class (off-premise) licensed business.

History

The Vermont Department of Liquor Control (DLC) was created in 1933, when the 21st Amendment to the U.S. Constitution repealed the Volstead Act (Prohibition). Control of the sale and distribution of alcohol was then transferred to state governments. In response, all states instituted some form of three-tier system of producers, wholesale distributors, and retailers to promote moderation in consumption, prevent concentration of power, and raise revenues through taxes.
