Salutt course

Salutt is an acronym for “sammen lager vi utelivet tryggere” (together we make night life safer). 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.


We offer digital Salutt courses in English from 21 March 2023.

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 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.

What do you learn?

The course provides an understanding of:

  • The Alcohol Act
  • How intoxication affects the body
  • Drugs

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

It usually takes 25 minutes to complete the test, but you can use up to 90 minutes.

How much does it cost?

  • It costs NOK 200. You pay with the Vipps app.
  • You will not have your expenses reimbursed if you unregister or fail to attend the course.
  • If your employer is to cover the course fee, you can use the receipt you receive from us as documentation.

For students

  • Students pay NOK 1 (due to the Vipps app and the registration).
  • Select courses for students in the course calendar.

Taking the course and the test

  • The course is digital. The day before the course you will receive an e-mail with more information and a link to the digital course.
  • You take the test digitally. We recommend that you use a PC or Mac for the course and the test.
  • You can spend up to 90 minutes om the test, and retake the test as many times as you want within 90 minutes.
  • If you do not pass the test during 90 minutes, you must take both the Salutt course and the test again.
