How old do you have to be to get your TABC certification?
TABC Certification Age Requirements
One of the most common questions I get when teaching an on-site TABC certification class is whether or not the TABC has age requirements to get TABC certified, and how old an employee has to be to do different jobs around the workplace in regards to alcohol. For instance, do you have to be a certain age to just be a drink runner since you’re not the one actually taking the order?
