Become a Certified Server in Michigan
On Aug. 1, 2001, the Michigan Liquor Control Commission (MLCC) enacted a mandatory training requirement for businesses that serve or sell alcoholic beverages. As a result, a certified server is legally required to be on site whenever alcohol is sold.
With our MLCC-approved training program, it's fast and easy to become a certified server or seller in Michigan. The three-hour online course is valid for both on- and off-premises certification, making it an ideal training solution for bartenders, servers, supervisors, cashiers, and other employees who handle alcohol.
