San Francisco Wine School is proud to host this special session of Responsible Beverage Service (RBS) Training at the Western Food & Hospitality Expo at the Los Angeles Convention Center in conjunction with the California Restaurant Association. Registrants will also receive Free Show Admission!
Effective 7/1/22, any on-premise alcohol server and manager in California must have a valid RBS certification from an ABC accredited RBS training provider and pass an online ABC administered RBS exam within 60 calendar days from the effective date or the first date of employment. San Francisco Wine School is one of only 10 in-person providers authorized to train throughout this state. Participation in the program online is also available.
TIPS, ServeSafe, and LEAD training and certification completed prior to 2021 do NOT satisfy the requirements for California’s RBS Certification. Learn more about the Responsible Beverage Service Training Act below and Complete your Mandatory RBS Training by the Aug 31, 2022 Deadline!
Responsible Beverage Service training educates persons seeking employment or who are currently employed as servers of alcoholic beverages for on-premises consumption. It aims to provide servers the necessary skills to responsibly serve alcoholic beverages and mitigate alcohol-related harm in California communities.
We created our curriculum in strict compliance with the ABC’s requirements with the goal of successful certification for all students and are 1 of only 10 approved in-person providers authorized to teach throughout the state.
Students will engage with the instructor and each other to learn ABC's exam objectives and discuss real world examples during this 4-hour live training. We will move through the material at a comfortably crisp pace with periodic "knowledge checks" and balance the day between potential liability and a touch of humor to keep us engaged. During the training, students will fill in the blanks in the workbook & study guide that we provide to be a resource during the open-book RBS Certification Exam from the ABC.
