Sample of the Washington Mast Class 12 and Class 13 Permits
1. Who needs to take the course?
The 1995 Legislature passed a law requiring Mandatory Alcohol Server Training (MAST) for managers, servers, bartenders and anyone who serves or sells alcohol. You are required to get the appropriate MAST permit within 60 days of hire. However, if you are an employee of a grocery store with a wine and beer tasting endorsement and will be conducting the tastings, you must obtain a Class 12 permit immediately. For more information on server training, go to http://liq.wa.gov/publications/MAST_Brochure.pdf.
2. What is the difference between a Class 12 and Class 13 Permit?
Class 12 is a mixologist permit for managers, bartenders and anyone else who mixes drinks with alcohol or draws from a tap, and is 21 years old. Anyone with a Class 12 permit is also authorized to perform duties included in the Class 13 permit. Every establishment where alcohol is consumed on the premises must have at least one Class 12 permit holder on duty.
Class 13 is a server permit for servers and ID checkers who are at least 18 years old and carry alcohol to customers or open beer and wine and pour it into a glass at the customer’s table. Class 13 permit holders cannot mix drinks or draw beer or wine from a tap.
Note: A Class 13 permit holder may upgrade to a Class 12 permit once he/she turns 21 for no additional cost. Call the American Safety Council at 1-800-732-4135 when you turn 21 to upgrade your Class 13 Permit.
3. How long does the class take?
All classes, whether online or in a classroom setting, must be at least 3 hours.
4. What is a passing score and what if I fail the test?
At the end of each module, there will be a quiz that you have to score 80% to continue on with the course. You can take the quizzes as many times as you like. At the end of the course there is a final exam. You must first meet the 3-hour time requirement before you can proceed to the exam. As you are going through the course, feel free to go back and review any of the information that has already been covered. However, once you begin the exam, you will NOT be able to go back and review any of the material. You have one attempt to complete the exam and must correctly answer 80% of the questions to receive your permit.
5. When will I receive my permit/certificate?
