The Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission (TABC) grants certificates to people over the age of 18 who have taken its training course to sell alcohol. This certificate is required for any bartender or waitress who serves alcohol in the state of Texas. Once you receive your certificate, you can request an additional copy for free until it expires. This is helpful when applying for a new job because you cannot serve customers until the certificate is on file.
