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.

No Salutt tests this summer

The Salute course can be viewed at any time, but it is not possible to take the test in July or the first two weeks of August.

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 aim of the course is to gain a basic understanding of the Alcohol Act and the responsibilities of those who serve alcohol.
