The Professional Bartending Schools have trained thousands of bartenders and servers in the Tennessee area in getting their server permits. We believe in teaching a high quality program at our campus. This is why we have chosen to teach the ServSafe Alcohol program.

The Professional Bartending School of Knoxville offers the best program available in responsible alcohol service and for less money than most other programs. We truly believe in alcohol responsible service and we tried to make it affordable and fun for our students and the public. We have offered many programs over the years such as the TIPS Server Training Program and the Barcode program, but we feel that the ServSafe Program by the National Restaurant Association is the best. This is the only program recognized by the National Restaurant Association and it will look good on your resume no matter where you might relocate or travel.

The National Restaurant Association Education Foundation (NRAEF) developed the ServSafe Alcohol Program to raise the bar in responsible alcohol service training and certification. ServSafe Alcohol is today's real-world training solution, with practical knowledge and best-in-class resources that help to prepare and protect every operation every day. We and the NRAEF want to protect you as a server or a bartender when you're dispensing alcohol.

We offer the Server Safe program several times a month. Please click herefor dates and times of our upcoming classes. The cost is only $65.00 - call (865) 693-6609 to reserve a spot in one of our upcoming classes. The $65.00 fee not only covers your 5 hour class, but we also notarized your state application for free. Once you are notified that you have passed the certification quiz, basically you take $20.00 and your application to the local Alcoholic Beverage Commission office or send it in to them and they will type up your ABC Server Permit Card which is good for 5 years. Our instructors make it easy for you and will give you good directions to the ABC office.

The classes are held on Sundays from 1:00 pm 6:00 pm. We also hold ABC Server Permit classes in the afternoon and evening throughout the month too.
