(3) Commission Training Program. To further
implement the policy and standards of the T.C.A. §
57-3-701 et seq, the Commission
may conduct its own program for servers. The cost to each server in attendance
will be $40. While attendance at a Certified Training Program for alcohol
awareness is required for any server to obtain a server permit, it is not
necessary that such server attend the Commission program. The Commission will
conduct such training upon a finding by the Commission that it is necessary for
the Commission to conduct the training because of the lack of substantial,
active, and decreasing number of certified server trainers.

out of the conduct of the licensed premises shall subject the license to

(7) Certified trainers shall not represent or
advertise to servers or any member of the general public that server permits
will be issued by the Commission within a specific length of time unless
authorized to do so by the Commission.
