TABC Certification Frequently Asked Questions

Your online TABC certification now takes only 2 hours to complete. The six hour time limit in one sitting is no longer in effect.

Yes, there is a final exam that you must score 70% to pass. You will have 2 attempts to pass the final exam and if you don't, you'll have to take the course over again (free of charge), but we think you'll do just fine.

Validation questions are questions we ask throughout the course to verify you are who you say you are. These TABC required questions are asked during enrollment and yes we know the questions are not fool-proof but they serve as a mechanism to keep you honest and on your toes. Besides if you have someone else take the course for you, you could be fined and jailed for lying to a State agency.

The TABC tracks certification with the SSN#. We wish we could change this but it's the law and it's the process. Don't worry, online registration is secure and so is your personal information with us.
