In-House Training

The Division of Liquor Control allows businesses to take a train the trainer approach to meeting the certification requirement with their employees using our In-House Training Program.  In-House certifications are not transferrable between businesses and are not acceptable for licensing.  Anyone delivering training  to their employees using the In-House Training Program materials must have a current DLC certification in their respective license area (1st class, 2nd class, etc.)

Anyone delivering In-House training on or after October 1, 2020 must have completed the “Train the Trainer” seminar, be a certified In-House Trainer and must follow all new requirements for the training they deliver to be considered valid. The “Train the Trainer” seminar is a FREE 1 hour virtual training that will cover the specifics of all new requirements and expectations.  After successful completion of training, an In-House Trainer Certificate will be issued.  Only Certified trainers will have access to all new training material.  Anyone previously trained using the In-House Training Program must be retrained following the new guidelines by a certified trainer by October 1, 2021.  The 2021 deadline provides a 1-year grace period to allow trainers to bring previously trained employees into compliance..

**If your employees are trained exclusively via DLC instructor-led classes or DLC online courses, these changes will not affect you.**
