The California Department of Alcohol Beverage Control (ABC) has established standards for the Responsible Beverage Service (RBS) Training Program and approved AEGIS Security & Investigations to offer this course throughout the state. ABC RBS Training is the California liquor industry’s standard in essential information servers and bartenders must know in order to avoid criminal, civil and administrative actions within the scope of their employment. ABC has been known to look favorably on establishments and servers who utilize best practices received through RBS training. In order for licensees to be eligible to receive mitigated penalties, they must provide proof of successful completion of a certified RBS training program by the involved server/seller at the time of Notification of Violation interview. Such training must have been successfully completed prior to the date of violation(s). Otherwise, liquor licenses can be suspended for as little at 5 days for first time violations and as much as revoked for habitual offenders. RBS Training covers material designed to avoid unnecessary exposure to liability. Becoming a responsible beverage server doesn’t only help avoid the establishment being subjected to suspensions, but it also helps servers avoid crimes related to liquor service as well as civil litigation. These misdemeanors include underage liquor service and service to someone who is overly intoxicated, among other crimes. The civil litigation avoided by an effective RBS training program includes law suits by patrons, local law enforcement, and from other employees/staff as well as the venue.
