AACEA Arizona: Who Needs To Take A Title 4 Course?
If you are involved in alcohol transactions or the alcohol industry in Arizona it is possible you will need to complete a Title 4 Course in order to be in compliance with the Arizona DLLC.
If you are an owner or manager of an establishment that holds a liquor license:
The Arizona Department of Liquor Licenses and Control (DLLC) mandates that anyone who owns and/or manages an establishment with a liquor license is required to take a Title 4 Basic Course and a Title 4 Manager Course. We want to note that these are two separate courses! It is imperative to complete both courses and receive a certificate for each course in order to comply with the DLLC’s requirements. It is also imperative to keep your certification current – the Title 4 Manager Certification is valid for 5 years and the Title 4 Basic Course is valid for 3 years.
In addition, it is a DLLC requirement that owners and managers complete both courses before applying for a liquor license – so if you’re planning on applying for a liquor license anytime soon you’ll need to become certified in both courses first!
If you are an employee who serves, mixes, or sells alcohol:
You are not required by the Arizona Department of Liquor Licenses and Control to complete a Title 4 Basic Course, BUT you are still required and expected to be aware of and comply with Arizona Liquor Laws. One of the best ways to ensure you have the knowledge you need to comply with Arizona Liquor Laws is to complete a Title 4 Basic Course and receive a certification. Some employers require that their employees complete a Title 4 Basic Course as a requirement for being hired in order to minimize the chances of them being involved in any alcohol related legal battles.
