California Responsible Beverage Service (RBS) Training

Effective July 1st, 2022, the standards required to serve alcohol in the state of California will be changing. Starting on that date, anyone who is serving alcohol in a place where it will be consumed, and the managers overseeing those servers, will be required to hold a valid RBS certification. This is a mandate that comes from the California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control.

Whether you already work in the food and beverage service industry, or you plan to seek employment in this industry in the near future, it’s important to understand this new requirement. Taking care of your Responsible Beverage Service training requirement as soon as possible will get this task off your plate and you’ll be able to focus on the other elements of your job duties or job search.

What is the RBS Training Program?

Our RBS Training Program is an online course aimed at allowing you to obtain your RBS certification to work legally in California as a server of alcoholic drinks or as a manager in such a setting. With the new requirement for all servers and managers to hold this certification, it’s important to make sure you have this in place by July 1st, 2022. Once you are hired in such a role, after the July 1st, 2022 date has passed, you will have 60 days to obtain your certification.

Who Needs an RBS Certification?

As of July 1st, 2022, everyone in the state of California who serves alcohol where it is consumed will be required to hold this certification. In addition, anyone who works in a managerial role for an establishment that serves alcohol will need to have this certification, as well. This requirement also extends to people who may serve alcoholic beverages in a transportation setting, such as on a plane or a train. Given how quick and simple it is to obtain this certification, it’s a good idea for anyone working in one of these roles in the state of California to get certified as soon as possible. In fact, even if you don’t yet have a job in this industry, getting your certification in advance is easy, affordable, and may make you a more attractive candidate.
