  • CPASA, will conduct a Beverage Alcohol Sellers and Servers Education and Training (BASSET) class for Sellers and Servers of Alcohol from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Thursday, April 16, 2015 at the Bureau County Health Department Conference Room, 526 Bureau Valley Parkway, Princeton. Registration will begin at 8:00am. Participants will receive 4 hours of instruction required for certification through the Illinois Liquor Control Commission. Certificates will be issued upon completion of the course.
    The Beverage Alcohol Sellers and Servers Education and Training (BASSET) program is the State of Illinois' seller/server training program. Under the licensing and regulatory auspices of the Illinois Liquor Control Commission (ILCC), the BASSET Program is designed to encourage sellers/servers of alcoholic beverages to serve responsibly and stay within the law.
    Topics covered will include: blood alcohol concentration or BAC, prevention and intervention techniques, information about Illinois state laws and statutes pertaining to alcohol service, proper techniques in checking ID’s, and dram shop law and liability. The goals and objectives of the BASSET Program are: train and educate sellers and servers to engage in responsible alcohol service, spot signs of intoxication and utilize various intervention techniques, prevent DUIs and alcohol-related fatalities, stop underage sales and underage drinking, and create safer communities and establishments where alcohol is served.
    The BASSET training is mandatory in the city of Princeton, and highly recommended in the rest of Bureau and Putnam Counties as well as surrounding counties. The city of Princeton ordinance requires that an applicant or license holder and 2 individuals employed by an applicant or license holder to sell, serve or otherwise dispense alcoholic liquor must have successfully completed the BASSET program. BASSET training could reduce an establishments’ liquor liability insurance and can also be provided at a worksite upon request.

    A $25 registration fee and pre-registration are required. For more information, contact CPASA Director Dawn Conerton at (815) 872-5091, ext. 224 or through email at dconerton@bchealthdepartment.org.
