Training Requirements for The Moose and Moose Legion

*Alcohol Server Training is required of any Officer, Administrator, employee or volunteer who may at one point go
behind the bar and serve alcohol

Lodge Leadership training for Elected Officers, as outlined in Moose International policy from the Chief Compliance Office, and Moose Legion Officer training, as stated in Moose Legion Code of Rules, must be completed within a 60-day window of taking office. Additionally, Administrators must complete the 2-HOTT (2 Section Hands On Technical Training) and Administrator School training within 6-months of taking office, but it is better for the Administrator to complete training before taking on the responsibilities of the position.


Policy mandated by the Moose International Board of Directors and as outlined in Moose Legion Code of Rules indicates that ALL training for The Moose and Moose Legion is valid for three years. Anyone who intends to hold office after their training dates have “expired” must take the appropriate training again. Specifically, should the officer’s training expire while holding office, they may finish out the term without retraining, but training must be retaken if they plan to hold office during the next fiscal year. For example, Jefferson Lodge 9999’s President last completed Lodge Leadership training on 6/10/2018. Their training technically expires on 6/10/2021, yet based on the above policy, they may finish out the 2021/2022 year without taking the training again because fiscal year is from May 01 to April 30 each year. They must, however, attend class again if they intend to hold office for the 2022/2023 year. Training for that term, ideally, should be completed prior to taking office; but as noted in the previous paragraph, they will have 60 days after taking office to complete the required training.


An online version of the Lodge Leadership Class is available on the Moose International website. An online class is a great alternative when a member cannot attend a class in person. While it is highly recommended that members attend instructor-led training, it is acceptable to complete the online training even when it is the member’s first experience with the class.


Alcohol Server Training can be found as both in both online and in-person versions dependent upon state requirements. Please make sure to complete an approved class for your state.

Training for Prevention


CONGRATULATIONS TO THOSE MOOSE LODGES throughout the Fraternity for your earnest efforts to comply with the Alcohol Server Training Program. The effort put forth by all will be both impressive and advantageous when insurance renewal occurs at the beginning of each fiscal year.  It must be the commitment of the entire Fraternity to make sure that all Servers are trained when serving alcohol in the Lodge Social Quarters as we go forward.


The Chief Compliance Office would like to remind Administrators to be aware of the expiration date on their Servers Certification Card, which they receive after completing their training.  It is critical that Administrators keep track of expired cards because it could affect the entire Risk Pool program if an incident occurs with an untrained Server.  It is therefore important to make sure that copies of all Server cards be kept in the Lodge office in the event that they need to be produced at any point time.  As a Fraternity, we have made a commitment under our Risk Pool Insurance to comply with this program and the Risk Management Department thanks all the Lodges who have done so.



Alcohol Server Training: Now a mandatory Lodge training program for all Servers. Regardless of whatever program is used, Server must be re-certified within 3 years from the date of their original training.


Kitchen Training: Thorough training instruction should be given to any person, paid or volunteer on all kitchen equipment and appliances and no Lodge should allow minor children to work in their kitchen at any time.


Heavy lifting: Proper lifting techniques are also very important because injuries from improper lifting happen frequently when employees/volunteers lift items beyond their capability and do not take time to ask for help.


Hazardous Material/Chemicals: This includes flammable substances such as propane, paint, gasoline, and heating oil. Other items could also be cleaning substances that could be toxic or harmful to breath or cause a skin rash. Training and instruction should be done for all employees regarding the dangers of these substances.
