Alcohol Seller-Server Training

ROCKLAND, Maine —  The Knox County Community Health Coalition (KCCHC), a Healthy Maine Partnership, will be hosting an alcohol server training for bars and restaurants from 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 24,  in the Council Chambers at Rockland City Hall, 270 Pleasant St.

Retired Liquor Control Officer Frank Lyon of BC Consultants will be presenting this state certified training. The training covers liquor liability laws, fraudulent ID’s, how to effectively handle visibly intoxicated persons, and strategies restaurants can adopt to protect their business and patrons. Quality training has proven to be an effective tool which when applied: prevents costly violations; instills more confidence in your alcohol servers; may reduce Liquor Liability Insurance (check with your insurance provider)

Those who successfully complete the program will be registered with the Maine Department of Public Safety, Liquor Licensing and will receive a certificate that is good for three years.

Partnering with KCCHC for this event are the Knox County law enforcement agencies. KCCHC is a community prevention group that works on the issues surrounding substance use, physical activity, nutrition, tobacco cessation and chronic disease.

Space is limited to 30 people, so registration is required by April 16. A training fee of $30 each is payable to BC Consultants.
