The right training right now.
The responsible alcohol service training decisions you make are critical. How can you make certain that your front-of-the-house staff is prepared for every situation? Where can you find training that works in their world, and works around their hectic schedules? The answer is ServSafe Alcohol.
ServSafe Alcohol training gives you options. You can choose to train with the Fundamentals of Responsible Alcohol Service textbook or with the ServSafe Alcohol Online Course and Exam. Whichever option you choose, you'll know you're making the right call. Because the ServSafe Alcohol Program was designed using the same approach that ServSafe® pioneered for food safety training. The ServSafe Alcohol program outlines effective responsible alcohol service practices for all front-of-the-house staff, including bartenders, waiters, hosts, busers, security and valets.
