NY Off-Premise Alcohol Course (ATAP)

The NY Off-Premise course is for anyone who sells alcohol by the bottle, case, or single cans that is intended to be taken off the store premises to be consumed elsewhere. This is anyone who works in a grocery store, liquor store, convenience store or gas station in NY.

Our online alcohol certification course has been approved in New York and currently meets the requirements of the New York Division of Alcohol Beverage Control and the New York State Liquor Authority (NYSLA)(Albany AT 0014).

When alcohol is sold "to go", there are times store employees can encounter alcohol-related issues. Having knowledge in advance will help to prevent these occurrences. It can also lower the owner's liquor liability insurance.
