Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Online LEAD Training Program?

The Online LEAD (Licensee Education on Alcohol and Drugs) Program is a free, voluntary prevention and education program for retail licensees, their employees, and applicants. The program provides attendees with practical information on serving alcoholic beverages safely, responsibly, and legally, with emphasis on preventing sales to minors, sales to obviously intoxicated persons, and illicit drug activity at the licensed establishment.

What are the benefits of online LEAD training?

This online training provides alcoholic beverage servers with the tools and knowledge they need to promote reasonable consumption of alcoholic beverages, keep alcohol out of the hands of underage persons, and contribute to making communities safer. As a result, licensees benefit from a reduction in risk of liability, including criminal (court action), civil (lawsuit), and administrative (ABC accusation).

Will this course satisfy the training requirement mandated by the city/county I work in?

You should contact the local agency that has mandated the training for information about which training programs will satisfy their training requirement and how often the training is required.

What are the completion requirements for the Online LEAD program?

This course is divided into 10 modules, with an assessment at the end of each module. The assessments become available after the student has viewed the entire content portion of the module. Successful completion of all assessments is required to obtain a certification of completion.
