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.

Digital Salutt courses

  • In the autumn, we will offer digital Salutt courses in English.

Who is required to complete the Salutt course? 

The course is mandatory for both full- and part-time employees who work in licensed premises that are open after 1 a.m. 
Examples of employees who are required to take the course are those who stand behind the bar and work in a serving function. The job title an employee has at the bar is not decisive. The key is whether the employee is involved in serving of alcohol. 

Those who are exempt from the course requirement are security guards, chefs, employees who clean without being in contact with guests and persons who work with entrance fees. 

Those who have taken Salutt course before do not need to take the course again. 

What do you learn?

The course provides an understanding of:

  • The Alcohol Act and other relevant regulations 
  • How intoxication affects the body 
  • Drugs

The day is concluded with a test based on the course programme.

How much does it cost?
