TopShelf ABC Training

Power of Putnam is pleased to offer TopShelf responsible beverage service trainings to establishments or individual servers. TopShelf is a State of Tennessee approved Responsible Beverage Server training program that not only teaches retail servers and clerks the liability associated with serving alcohol, but also instills valuable skills to allow servers to handle difficult situations with a positive outcome for everyone involved.

Power of Putnam follows all laws of the State of Tennessee, regulations from The TN Alcoholic Beverage Commission, and TopShelf progam guidelines for all RBS programs we conduct.

We offer on-premise and off-premise courses periodically, or we can schedule a class primarily for your establishment.

With TopShelf training your establishment can lower risk and provide a safer, more responsible work environment.  Your establishment can gain valuable competitive advantages such as:

Learn how to identify high-risk buyers and situations

Reduced exposure to alcohol liability lawsuits

Decreased penalties for alcohol violations

A safer community

Improved customer service
