Alcohol server training can be effective in decreasing underage alcohol sales and overservice. Oklahoma statistics show that there is a need for Responsible Beverage Service and Sales training to decrease these issues which will also decrease the negative outcomes such as alcohol-related crashes.
Groups across Oklahoma started meeting to form alcohol server training to aid in decreasing underage access and use.
The first curriculum was completed with the aid of the Oklahoma Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services, the Oklahoma ABLE Commission, and other prevention providers. It was named Responsible Beverage Service and Sales Training.
