What is the RBS Training Program?

Passage of Assembly Bill 1221 in 2017 created the Responsible Beverage Service Training Act.  The bill required the Alcoholic Beverage Control to create the Responsible Beverage Service Training Program to ensure servers and their managers of alcoholic beverages are educated on the dangers of serving alcohol to minors and over-serving alcohol to patrons with the intention of reducing alcohol related harm to local communities. The new mandate creates a new training requirement for an estimated 1,000,000 on-premises alcohol servers, their managers, and licensees beginning in 2021. ​
 ​
Beginning July 1, 2021, any alcohol server and their manager 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 first date of employment.

Who Must be Trained Under AB 1221?

Beginning in July 2021, any ABC licensee who has an “ABC On-Premises License” will need to have their staff (alcohol servers and managers of alcohol servers) trained and certified in RBS within sixty (60) days of employment. This includes but is not limited to: restaurants, bars, fast casual dining, tasting rooms (including off-sale locations), hotels, and stadiums.

“ABC On-Premises License” means an ABC license that grants the privilege to serve alcoholic drinks to patrons who then consume them within the licensed premises.

Does AB 1221 apply to entities obtaining daily licenses?

For events under a daily license, at least one person working the event is required to be RBS trained and certified. The person(s) identified on the one-day application as being RBS trained and certified must remain on-site during the duration of the event.

Additionally, the RBS trained and certified person(s) must actively monitor the service of alcoholic beverages to guests at the event and have created policies for the event that mandate and foster responsible alcoholic beverage service.

What is the definition of an alcohol server under AB 1221?

An alcohol server, as defined under AB 1221 includes anyone who does any of the following:

  • Checks customer identification for purposes of alcoholic beverage service or entry to an ABC on-premises licensed establishment,
  • Takes customer alcoholic beverage orders,
  • Pours alcoholic beverages for customers, or
  • Delivers alcoholic beverages to customers.

What is the definition of an alcohol manager under AB 1221?

A manager means any person who trains, hires, or oversees alcohol servers at an ABC on-premises licensed establishment, or any person who makes policy or operational decisions about how alcohol service is performed at an ABC on-premises licensed establishment, including but not limited to; when to check identification and when to refuse service to a customer.

Important Dates to Remember

As an ABC On-Premises Licensee, what are the important dates that I need to know to be in compliance with the new law?

ABC approved RBS training and certification will be mandatory for alcohol servers and their managers beginning July 1, 2021.

ABC On-Premises Licensees have sixty (60) days from July 1, 2021 to have their staff trained and certified by an approved RBS training provider.  This includes the successful completion of an ABC administered RBS exam.

Enforcement of AB 1221 will begin September 1, 2021.

Mission of The Responsible Beverage Service Training Program
