  • All cashiers selling wine at an establishment with a wine expanded permit.
  • All new alcohol service personnel hired on or after 8-8-16 who are not RAMP-trained must be so within six months of being hired and be re-trained before their current training expires.
  • All new alcohol service personnel hired on or after 8-8-16 who are already RAMP-trained must be re-trained before their current training expires.
  • All employees hired before 8-8-16 who are not RAMP-trained, but transfer into an alcohol service position on or after 8-8-16, need to obtain RAMP training within six months of assuming their new duties. 

   In addition, many licensees participate in the state's voluntary RAMP certification program because of the safety benefits and other incentives that come with cooperation. For this reason, you may need RAMP server / seller training to get a job as a bartender or alcohol seller or server at many businesses in Pennsylvania. The good news?

   Legislation enacted June 18, 2001 established the Responsible Alcohol Management Program, which is a voluntary certification that provides incentives for licensees who participate and complete five components. One of these components is server / seller training. In order to fulfill these requirements, at least 50% of the licensee's alcohol service staff must complete an approved server / seller training. Included in that group is anyone who serves alcohol and/or checks IDs, as well as owners and managers. This percentage must be maintained at all times.
