California Liquor License

The Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) is the authorized regulatory body that monitors alcohol sales and service in the state. It requires workers to complete a Responsible Beverage Service training program offered by an approved RBS provider. Through the RBS, the ABC ensures the safety of the general public that may otherwise result from the improper sale and service of alcohol to intoxicated people or minors.

The RBS is characterized by three elements, according to the ABC: the incorporation of alcohol service policies for ABC-licensed establishments, the provision of server training and guidance, and the harmonious and combined effort of communities, law enforcement and local governments in promoting the safe service and sales of alcoholic beverages.

Learn2Serve’s California Responsible Beverage Service Training program will equip bartenders, waiters and shift managers and bar owners of how to legally and responsibly sell alcoholic beverages on and off-premises, whether at a convenience store, restaurant or bar. The course also aims to to stop the occurrence of underage drinking and related accidents, ultimately protecting establishments from liabilities.

Students have the option to choose from a Convenience Store Essential Bundle or from our online catalog of individual courses. Generally speaking, our program focuses on techniques that will help you recognize the effects of alcohol on your customers, and help you device ways of intervening with alcohol sales to intoxicated persons and minors. The course will also teach you how to card individuals and calculate blood alcohol levels.

After finishing our course and successfully passing your exam with a seventy percent score, Learn2Serve will provide you with your certificate of completion which you can access directly on your account. This certification is valid for two years.

RBS training is not mandatory at the state level but is mandatory in the city of Ventura, Salinas, Rohnert Park, Newport Beach, and Berkeley and Orange County, Almeda County. Check with your local health department or employer to know whether you need to acquire a liquor license prior to starting work.
