What Is BASSET And What Does It Mean

BASSET stands for Beverage Alcohol Sellers and Servers Education and Training. It's a state-approved and required course for anyone selling or serving alcoholic beverages in Illinois to learn Illinois liquor laws and do it responsibly. Alcohol is preferred by employers within the state.

Illinois typically mails your official Basset license to your home address. They use the address you filled out in our system before taking your Illinois Basset course. But, recently, the Illinois Liquor Control Commission (ILCC) stated that they will not be mailing the Basset license cards to your home address. We believe this is a temporary change as they have been instituting many changes and updates to their entire program.

Your Illinois Basset certificate from Serving Alcohol is legal and valid until and after the official Basset License arrives in your mail. If your address in the course profile is wrong or outdated, let us know so we can update the state's database.
