BASSET On The Fly is an official provider of online BASSET certifications for sellers and servers of alcoholic beverages in Illinois, approved by the Illinois Liquor Control Commission. Created by Dustin Meyers, a veteran restaurant guy who has held virtually every position in the restaurant industry, our course utilizes the real stories and experiences of fellow seller-servers so you can make informed decisions and follow the law. We aren’t some corporate training company and our course doesn’t have cheesy skits with Z-list actors. Our course was made by seller-servers, for seller-servers in the great state of Illinois.


Fastest BASSET Course Allowed

Our online BASSET training is fast and user-friendly. We know you work a lot of hours, which is why this course was made for people like you – servers, bartenders, clerks, managers, and owners. You’ll learn everything you need to know about selling or serving alcoholic beverages in Illinois and following the law. We’ll discuss situations you’re likely to find yourself in while on the job, and how to handle them. Everything in our online certification course is designed to give you the knowledge you need to make informed decisions, follow the law, and be successful at work.


Perfect for Employers

For those of you who manage or own a restaurant, bar, liquor store, convenience store, grocery store, or hotel, BASSET On The Fly also created a free online roster system for employer accounts. Our system will automatically alert you and your employee via email one month before their BASSET certificate expires. This helps ensure your business stays compliant and protected under Illinois law. Need to pay for your employees to take the course? We make that easy, too. With your free employer account, you can buy pre-paid codes at any time, in any quantity.
