Utah EASY Bartender Alcohol Awareness Training
Utah alcohol awareness training ensures that alcohol service remains fun and rewarding, but also a job that is to be taken seriously. When alcohol is involved, people -- and situations -- can sometimes get out of control.
Therefore, a bartender, or alcohol seller-server, needs to be prepared for difficult people and situations and be aware of their own liability and the need to protect themselves professionally and personally. That's why alcohol awareness training is necessary.
Benefits of Alcohol Awareness Training
- Educates bartenders and servers about responsible alcohol consumption and offer strategies for protecting guests, employers, and themselves.
- Details the physiological effects of alcohol and offer important information about legal liability.
- Helps further a career as a professional bartender or alcohol server.
- May be required by a state or municipality to sell or serve alcohol.
- May be required for employment by an establishment: bar, restaurant, hotel, tavern, night club, banquet hall, liquor store, grocery store, convenience store and/or gas station.
- Educates owners, managers and staff on liability, state laws, and local ordinances regarding alcohol service.
It has become increasingly necessary for servers of alcohol to protect themselves legally. Due to draw-shop liability laws, servers themselves can be held responsible for any harm that intoxicated or underage guests perpetrate on themselves or others. So, it is important for alcohol servers to be aware of their liability and to protect themselves.
Utah Alcohol Server Requirements
Utah law requires every person who serves alcohol in a restaurant, club, bar or tavern, to complete an alcohol training and education within 30 days of employment and re-certify every 3 years. Title 62A-15-401 of the Utah Code requires alcohol servers to complete an Alcohol Certification Course.
