 California Responsible Serving® of Alcohol Approvals

California
The current Rserving® - Responsible Serving® of Alcohol course can be used to obtain your Responsible Beverage Server (RBS) training certificate.

However, the state of CA is working on new requirements for next year. But the requirements are not completed yet. Therefore, no courses can meet the upcoming Responsible Beverage Service Training Program Act (RBSTPA) standards, which are scheduled for 2021.

Once the new training requirements are completed, all bartenders, servers and managers will have to take the new training (when it is approved). Therefore, for students that take our current training, we will provide "no charge" training for an approved course in 2021. This assumes we will get approved. If we cannot get approved, we would not be able to provide the "no charge" approved course.

Please note that we will work to get approved, but we cannot control the approval process, or the course approval date. In addition, there may be other circumstances beyond our control.

Details:
Sign up and take Rserving's training now and receive your certificate (which will be valid through July 2021). Then, as soon as our new course has been approved by the California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control (again assuming that we get approved) to meet the requirements of the Responsible Beverage Service Training Program Act (RBSTPA), students can complete our updated training course at no additional charge to receive your RBST certification (valid for an additional 3 years). The new training will comply with the new Responsible Beverage Service Training Program Act (RBSTPA) which requires all servers and managers to complete the new training effective July 1, 2021.
