Does the MAST program cost anything?

Yes, and while the starting price on the site I used was about $19.99, prices may vary. But this has to be a WA State approved course for the MAST Certificate to be valid.

Once the Test is passes, you have 5 years with your certificate.

This will have to be renewed prior to it expiring, and the whole course will have to be taken over again. But 3+ hours of your time is worth it when you can walk away knowing you have all the tools in your belt to allow you to Serve alcohol like a champ.
