4 Steps To Getting A Bartending Job In Calgary


Proserve Alcohol Server Certification

Proserve is an Alberta Government program designed to inform you of all your legal responsibilities when serving alcohol. Anyone that serves alcohol in the province of Alberta must have Proserve. You can add the Proserve Certification course to your Certified Bartender course at checkout for an additional $30.

After completing the proserve program, your certificate is valid for 5 years. If you already have taken the proserve program, but it has been more than 5 years, you are required to take it again.

Most bar managers will ask you if you have completed the Proserve program when you apply for work at their establishment.

ProServe is mandatory under AGLC policy. Liquor Licensees who employ non-certified workers after January 1, 2010 can be issued a warning, fine, license suspension or license termination.
