ABOUT OUR ONLINE BASSET CERTIFICATION COURSE
BASSET On The Fly is designed to provide sellers and servers of alcohol in Illinois the most efficient way to obtain their certification. It is no longer required to drive and attend an on-site BASSET certification course to receive or renew your certification. BASSET On The Fly offers you a quick and affordable online BASSET certification course, which can be taken in the comfort of your own home, on your schedule.
As a server, I found myself in your position every couple years: sitting in front of the computer having to suffer through a mind-numbing online certification course on selling alcohol, a course that inevitably missed the mark on reflecting what it’s really like to work in the service industry. BASSET On The Fly was created out of my desire to fix that.
I wanted to provide sellers and servers in Illinois an online BASSET certification course that adequately reflects the reality of the environment they work in. Our BASSET certification course wasn’t created by some corporate training company and doesn’t have cheesy skits with Z-list actors. Our online certification course was made by seller-servers, for seller-servers in the Land of Lincoln with their real stories and experiences.
ILLINOIS LIQUOR CONTROL COMMISSION
As a seller or server of alcoholic beverages in the state of Illinois, you may be learning for the first time about the BASSET card your employer is likely making you obtain. The curriculum is designed by the Illinois Liquor Control Commission, the state agency that regulates the alcoholic beverage industry in Illinois. The ILCC firmly believes that sellers and servers of alcoholic beverages, with proper training, are more able to identify and avoid the sale of alcoholic beverages to minors and intoxicated persons.
THE GUY BEHIND OUR COMPANY
My career in the restaurant business started all because I wanted to save some money for gas and insurance before getting my driver’s license. There were a handful of stores within walking distance from our house in Georgetown, Texas and one of them, a tiny family-owned Italian restaurant, just happened to be in the market for someone to wash dishes, buss tables, and clean the bathrooms. I was their guy. When I turned 16 a few months later, I landed my first serving job at a sweet 1950′s-style diner called Monument Cafe which has since been featured on the Food Network show Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives. Needless to say, these early job decisions turned into a career.
My career as a server spanned many years, during which time I had the opportunity to oversee the private dining program at one of the most exclusive, fine-dining steakhouses in Dallas and one of the highest-grossing restaurants in the United States … All while I was still in college. The experience I gained from standing in front of and speaking to large groups of business executives, attorneys, doctors, celebrities, and professional athletes was unlike anything I could have experienced elsewhere, and it further solidified my belief that this is truly an awesome industry to be a part of.
Since then, I received my Bachelor of Science in Business Administration and Master of Arts in Communication before moving on to become General Manager at an upscale, high-volume restaurant in Uptown Dallas. I created TABC On The Fly, a leading provider of alcohol seller-server training in Texas, while I was a General Manager.
