ISEP > Education > Trainer Certification Trainer Certification

The Indiana State Excise Police have announced dates for Train the Trainer training sessions. A certified trainer may conduct a server program. Certified trainers must be employed by either a 3rd party training provider or in-house training provider. Trainers employed by a 3rd party training provider may provide server training to the general public. Trainers employed by an in-house training provider may provide server training to in-house employees only. All 3rd party training providers must appoint a program director as the point of contact for the ATC. The requirements for becoming a certified trainer are as follows:

Sec. 6. (a) Prior to acting as a certified trainer, a person shall:
    (1) have prior experience in conducting educational or training classes;
    (2) be employed or retained by a training provider or in-house training provider; and
    (3) hold a certified trainer certificate.
(b) A certified trainer shall do the following:
    (1) Conduct certified training programs as follows:
        (A) In a format approved by the commission.
        (B) Using materials approved by the commission.
    (2) Maintain the following:
        (A) Control while conducting a class.
        (B) Issued materials and equipment.
        (C) A professional appearance and demeanor while conducting a class.
    (3) Not issue a server certificate to a person who has not successfully completed the server program.
    (4) Not provide training and testing materials to a person who is not in attendance at a class.
    (5) Not allow admission to a person, or allow continued attendance to a class, if that person is as follows:
        (A) Tardy.
        (B) Creating a disruption during the class.
        (C) Cheating.
        (D) Under the influence of alcoholic beverages or drugs during the class.
        (E) Not registered to attend or is there without permission of the:
            (i) training provider; or
            (ii) commission.

To become a certified trainer, you must download and complete the attached application.  Make sure to have the application notarized and submitted to the local Excise office at least 7 days prior to the Train the Trainer course.  Be sure to indicate the exact training session that you are registering for.  It must be submitted to the Excise district where the training session is located.  You can attend a training program anywhere in the state.  You can view our district map here.

The Commission may refuse to issue, renew or restore a trainer certificate to an applicant who has been convicted of a felony if less than two years have elapsed from the date the applicant was discharged from probation, imprisonment or parole, whichever discharge date is the latest, to the date the applicant applies for the trainer certificate.

Some training locations have limited seating, so registration for a class will close once capacity has been reached. Our district office will contact you about alternate dates and locations should your training location of choice reach capacity.

You must bring a government issued ID and something to write with to the training.  It is strongly encouraged that you bring note taking materials as well.  The training will last approximately 4 to 5 hours. 

If you have questions about the training, you can contact the ATC via e-mail at servertraining@atc.in.gov.

Notice - The Trainer re-certification process is currently under construction. If your trainer certification expires prior to the renewal process being made available, it will not affect your ability to train and certify servers. Do not attend a regular Trainer class for new trainers. Continue to check this website for updates to the re-certification process.
