Beginning July 1, 2022, the Responsible Beverage Service Training Act will go into effect.
The law requires that anyone who serves alcohol, manages servers, delivers alcohol, takes orders, or checks IDs at a California business that serves alcohol must be trained and have a valid Responsible Beverage Server (RBS) certification from ABC by August 31, 2022.
They can accomplish this through a three-step process:
- Register with ABC as a Server on the RBS Portal
- Take RBS training from an approved RBS Training Provider
- Return to the RBS Portal to take ABC’s alcohol server certification exam.
You can begin step one by registering with ABC through the RBS training portal.
