Salutt course

Salutt is an acronym for “sammen lager vi utelivet tryggere” (together we make night life safer). The one day course will build expertise among employees in the hospitality industry. The goal is to make Oslo safe for both employees and guests. Good collaboration and dialogue between the City of Oslo and the city’s licensees is important in achieving this.

About the course

  • The course is mandatory for both full- and part-time employees who work in licensed premises that are open after 1 a.m.
  • As part of alcohol inspections we will check to ensure that employees working after 01:00 AM have taken the Salutt course.
  • Many of our courses are fully booked. During a transitional phase it will be acceptable if those working after 01:00 AM are signed up for a course.

Who is required to complete the Salutt course?

The course is mandatory for both full- and part-time employees who work in licensed premises  after 1 a.m. and who serve alcohol. Examples of employees who are required to complete the course are head waiters, waiters, bartenders and table clearers. Security personnel, chefs and staff in cloakrooms/cover are not required to take the course.

Those who have completed a Salutt course between 2012 and 2017 are not required to retake the course.

What do you learn?

The course provides an understanding of:

  • The Alcohol Act and other relevant regulations
