So, you’ve made the decision to get your TABC License. Congratulations – it’s a smart move if you’re pursuing a career in serving and selling alcohol. Your next big question is this: Should you take the in-classroom course, or opt for the online option?

Each option has its own benefits and drawbacks—it all depends on the individual who is taking the test. Some people prefer the structure of the classroom, and the environment that it provides. Other people prefer to learn on their own, in the comforts of their own home.

In the past, in-class courses were the only way to go, because they were the only option. But as soon as online courses became available, they quickly became the more popular option. In today’s hectic and fast-paced world, it’s not always easy to find the time to attend a class. The Internet has made our lives much easier by cutting out unnecessary steps, and it has expedited just about every facet of our lives, from shopping to playing—and yes, even learning!


  • Make New Friends: Chances are, in a classroom you could meet some new people.
  • Having an Instructor: In a classroom there’s a teacher who can answer your questions.
  • Traditional Methods: If you learn better with lectures, books, and studying, in-class courses can provide the old-school structure you need.
  • Additional Help: Classroom settings help you learn by drilling the material into your head until you’ve memorized it.
  • No Computers: If technology frightens you, you won’t have to concern yourself with scary URLs and E-mails.


  • Go At Your Own Pace: With an online class you can do it all in one session, or in smaller increments. It’s up to you. You can chip away at the lessons over breakfast, or on your lunch break at work.
  • Save Time: Obviously, you can cut out a lengthy and time-consuming commute to wherever your class is. In fact, you can wake up, grab your laptop, and take the course before you even get out of bed in the morning!
  • 24-Hour Help Line: In lieu of an instructor, there’s a help line that is available to you at all hours of the day and night.
  • Easy Renewal: Once you’ve earned your TABC certification online, you will have to renew it every 2 years. Luckily for you, there are TABC Certification Renewal courses also available online, making your renewal as easy as getting certified in the first place!
  • Embrace Modern Technology: Face it—you’re here now, on your computer, probably sitting in your bed or on your couch. Comfy? Perfect. You don’t even have to get up to take the TABC Certification online!

If you have to think about it, then do so carefully. Whether it’s in the classroom or online, you have to pick the course that’s right for you. Of course, if you’d been taking the online option instead of reading this, you’d probably be at the first quiz by now…
