In-House Training Materials


The Division of Liquor Control does allow businesses to take a train the trainer approach to meeting the certification requirement with their  employees.  While every business must have an owner, manager or partner who is DLC certifed, a DLC certified employee may train other employees using DLC In-House Training Materials.  In-House certifications are not transferrable between businesses and are not acceptable for licenseing.    You may only train someone if you have a valid DLC certification in that course.


Our Online Storefront and payment processing system has recently changed.  Returning users may need to reset their password and update their contact information.   Previous certifications are still available through this site.  Please contact us if you need assistance during business hours at 802-828-2339.
