MAST Permits

Mandatory Alcohol Server Training (MAST) is required by law for managers, bartenders and other employees who serve alcohol or supervise the sale of alcohol for on-premises consumption at liquor licensed establishments such as:

  • Restaurants
  • Nightclubs
  • Taverns
  • Snack bars
  • Private clubs
  • Sports/entertainment facilities
  • Wineries, breweries and craft distilleries with retail sales and on-premises consumption
  • Grocery stores with the beer and wine tasting endorsement
    • Please note: Grocery store employees must have their Class 12 permit at the time of the tasting event

The MAST permit is required within 60 days of hire and is issued to those who successfully complete a MAST class and exam.

MAST is provided by WSLCB certified providers either online or through trainers. The WSLCB does not conduct classes or issue MAST permits. For more information on how to obtain a MAST permit visit our Get a MAST Permit page.
