AACEA Washington: MAST Permit Helpful Info & FAQs
If you’re in the market for a Class 12 MAST Permit or a Class 13 MAST Permit you may have some questions, so we thought we would put a list of some FAQs together for you! If you don’t give a hoot about the FAQs and just want to get your Online MAST Training taken care of, you are welcome to do that too!
For those of you who are still with us, check out some helpful FAQ answers below:
Do I really have to get a MAST Permit? If you serve, mix, or sell alcohol in Washington State, then yes you do. We know it’s not ideal and we know it sucks to have to spend your free time taking a "boring" course about alcohol laws, BUT we promise our course isn’t so bad. Our founder was a stand-up comedian back in the day, so you can bet there is some humor in our MAST course which will hopefully make it a little more enjoyable for you!
Fiiiiiine, I’ll take the course. I just got hired, when do I have to get my MAST Permit? In Washington State you need to take a MAST Permit Course within 60 days of your hire date.
Okay cool, how long is my MAST permit good for? You’re looking at 5 years tops, unless you do something that warrants a revocation of your permit (don’t worry, you’ll learn how to prevent this from happening in our MAST Course).
So I have to retake the course every 5 years to keep my MAST permit valid? Yes you do. Sorry, we don’t make the rules!
What if I have more than one job? Do I need a MAST Permit for each job? No, you only need one permit regardless of how many places you work at. We recommend leaving a copy of your permit at each establishment you serve alcohol at and keeping the original permit with you at all times – your MAST Permit is your property, not your employers!
