The restaurant owner requires waiters to take both a course on wine and a seminar on people skills before he will allow them to serve in his restaurant. No error

they say no error, but...

"before he will allow them to serve in his restaurant" - shouldn't this read "before he allows them to serve in his restaurant"?

he will allow: future tense. Yes the subject is the restaurant owner which is singular but in future tense you would not say "he will allows."

"before he allows them" sound wrong. sounds better as "before he will allow them"
