What is the Washington Mandatory Alcohol Server Training?

The Washington State laws makes it mandatory for people who manage or serve liquor licensed establishments to obtain either Class 12 or Class 13 permits by completing the Mandatory Alcohol Server Training (MAST). The class required depends on the age of the server. Permits are valid for five years and expire on the first day of the month after the month you obtained the certification. For example, if you completed your MAST certification on July 21, your permit will expire on August 1 five years later.

    Tobacco Seller

    This course introduces the world of tobacco laws and regulation. Throughout this course, United States federal laws concerning the sale of tobacco and tobacco-related products will be discussed.

    In the United States, the "Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act," also known as the "Tobacco Control Act," governs the ways in which tobacco products may be sold and distributed to consumers. This course-and the Tobacco Control Act-focuses primarily on keeping tobacco and tobacco-related products out of the hands of children (by law, defined as anyone under the age of 18 years old). These restrictions involve numerous regulatory and advertising standards, as well as strict laws regarding the advertising and promotion of cigarettes and other tobacco-containing products.

    This course also explains the significant health risks to smokers and others who use tobacco products, and seeks to minimize the damage done to the youngest generations by helping them choose to avoid becoming smokers or tobacco users.

State Requirements

The Washington State Liquor Control Board is in charge of regulating the activities in relation to the sales and service of alcohol in the state. It mandates on-premise alcohol servers to complete the Mandatory Alcohol Server Training (MAST) course program online within 60 days of employment date. There are two types of permit in the State of Washington:

Class 12 – Are intended for 21 years old and older. The permit allows individuals to draw alcoholic beverages from tap and mix drinks; take orders for alcoholic beverages and serve them; hold beer and wine tasting at a grocery store; and manage the establishment (with one Class 12 permit holder on duty).

Class 13 – Are intended for employees 18 years old and older. The permit allows employees to take alcoholic beverages orders and deliver the beverage to the customer’s tables. It limits the employee’s action to serving the alcohol only. Permit holders are eligible to upgrade to a Class 12 permit once they turn 21.

Learn2Serve.com’s course satisfies the requirements for obtaining a Washington state alcohol permit. Once you finish our course, we will be the one to report your course completion to the WSLCB so you can receive your MAST permit in the mail within 30 days. The permit is good for five years and should be kept during work hours.
