Welcome to the AST (sm)* website!
Alcohol Servers Training & Services (sm)* is New Mexico's leading alc ohol ce rtification provider. Our certification classes are the most comprehensive and professional server education in New Mexico. Many of New Mexico's largest companies depend on Alcohol Server Training (sm)* to certify all their employees.

The New Mexico Alcohol Server Education Act mandates that anyone who serves alcohol, sells alcohol, or manages a liquor licensed premise in New Mexico must become Alcohol Server Certified. Our classes provide all the state-required training, including laws and regulations, effects of alcohol, enforcement practices, and recommendations for owners and managers for safe and responsible alcohol service.

We are authorized to issue immediate certifications after the completion of the class. We offer a convenient, repeating schedule of classes (see CLASS SCHEDULE page).

New Mexico is one of the few States to enact mandatory server certification (NM Statutes Annotated 1978, Chapter 60, Article 6E [see LINKS page]), officially known as the New Mexico Alcohol Server Education Program. The Program is referred to, in popular vernacular, as "alcohol training", "alcohol certification", "alcohol license", and/or "alcohol class". Responsible beverage service training is a valuable public safety program, and benefits the community in many ways. Your feedback on this Program is also of great value. Please contact the Alcohol and Gaming Division (see LINKS page) with your suggestions and comments.

We hope our website, www.asts-nm.com, will provide New Mexico's alcohol servers and sellers with useful licensed beverage training information. Alcohol Server Training
(sm)* is committed to responsible beverage service, and provides superior certification education.

New Mexico's Alcohol Server Education Program is an important part of DWI Prevention. Alcohol-related problems and DWI crash statistics are alarming. New Mexico's highways are no longer the most dangerous in the U.S., but still rank near the top 10 among all States in alcohol-related crashes by population.

Alcohol Server Training

NM Alcohol BUZZ!

Updated 11/30/22


What are the requirements for obtaining a New Mexico alcohol server permit? 

Answer:  A person 18 years of age or older may obtain a New Mexico alcohol server permit (alcohol server license, alcohol server certification) by attending a New Mexico alcohol education class.

Once the person is alcohol server certified, their employer is required to have a copy of the NM alcohol server permit on file.  In New Mexico the server/seller of alcohol is not required to carry their NM alcohol server permit while serving/selling alcohol.  It is suggested that the NM alcohol server carry a photo of the alcohol server permit on their phones.

NM Alcohol BUZZ!

Updated 11/30/22


Currently Alcoholic Beverage Control of New Mexico (ABC of NM) is behind in processing alcohol server applications.  

If a NM alcohol server attended a New Mexico alcohol server education class, please note that the temporary alcohol server permit issued at the end of class is valid for 120 days from the date of issuance.  

If the NM alcohol server has not received their NM alcohol server permit in the mail from ABC of NM and has been more than 120 days since the temporary was issued, the server must contact ABC of NM directly at 505.476.4875.  

ABC of NM must reissue a new NM temporary alcohol server permit after the first 120 days has passed.
