FOR TRAINING FOR ALCOHOL PROFESSIONALS (TAP) OR SERVSAFE PLEASE CONTACT EDWARD CANFIELD AT: ALASKA CHARR 907.274.8133 WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU TOOK THE TAP CLASS?? If you are like many people across the state you may have been certified to serve and sell alcohol for quite some time. Sometimes people like the option to test out of certification and be certified with TAP for the next 3 years. But I think, rather than just testing out, that you should sit through the class! It can be a great way to learn something new about Alaska Statutes, identification, marijuana laws, firearms and updated regulations. ALASKA CHARR MAGAZINE | 23
