California's Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) has reviewed and approved our CA Responsible Serving® of Alcohol course for training of bartenders, alcohol sellers and servers, and anyone else who sells or serves alcohol to customers (including waiters and waitresses). This course meets the ABC's Responsible Beverage Service Training Act and RBS training requirements.

If you are interested in becoming a bartender or alcohol server in California and need alcohol server education to meet the requirements of AB-1221 and ABC training, this course is what you need! Many employers are keenly aware of the consequences of failing alcohol stings, serving to minors or intoxicated customers, and drunken driving convictions, and are actively looking for employees trained in the responsible serving® of alcohol. 

For a limited time, you can train online and get your California alcohol seller certification (called a bartender permit or license in some areas) for just $5.95!

What is AB-1221?

Beginning in July, 2022, all staff who work for an ABC licensee with an ABC On-Premises license are required to be trained and certified. This course meets this requirement and prepares you for the alcohol server certification exam. 

This online course covers everything that an alcohol server needs to know to responsibly and safely serve alcohol. 

In the course, you'll learn:

  • Methods and practices for checking IDs
  • Tips and techniques for identifying and stopping or slowing service to intoxicated patrons
  • Ways to reduce drunken driving

and much more.
