Retail Beverage Service Training
River Valley Healthy Communities invites local area businesses to attend Retail Beverage Service Training
The “Seller Server Training for On-premise Licensees” is designed to better equip management, waitstaff and licensees on identifying and preventing violations of certain liquor laws with an emphasis on underage and high-risk drinkers. Along with learning about these laws, training is provided on some ways to identify minors and visibly intoxicated persons and the importance of having good policy to refer to when dealing with them.
The training often leads to reduced insurance rates. More importantly, however, it will help reduce the risk of making costly and/or tragic unlawful sales. The key points in the training include: identifying minors and VIPs, intervention to prevent a VIP patron from driving; how alcohol is ingested and metabolized by the body; what alcoholism is and how alcohol affects the body; false ID detection and carding policy; the importance of good written policies; and the Liquor Liability Act.
This is a 4½ hour State of Maine Approved Program.
The training will be conducted on Thursday, July 1, at the Newry Grange Hall from 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Registration is required and lunch will be provided. For more information please contact Sandy Palmer at 364.7408 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
