Beverage Alcohol Sellers and Servers Education and Training
Effective July 1, 2017, the State of Illinois Public Act 098-0939 mandates all Randolph County managers, servers of alcohol, as well as anyone responsible for checking identification, to complete a Beverage Alcohol Sellers and Servers Education and Training (BASSET) Certification.
The BASSET Program encourages sellers/servers of alcoholic beverages to serve responsibly and stay within the law. Proof of BASSET Certification from Illinois Liquor Control and Commission approved vendors will be required for all establishments’ liquor license applications and liquor license renewals.
