What is RBSS Training?

Alcohol server training known as Responsible Beverage Sales and Service Training (RBSS) is a partnership between the Oklahoma Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services, Prevention Providers, and the Oklahoma Alcoholic Beverage Laws Enforcement Commission (ABLE). The training program provides owners, managers, and servers of establishments that serve/sell alcohol with the knowledge and skills to help them serve/sell alcohol responsibly and fulfill the legal requirements of alcohol service. The class is free of charge and provides valuable Oklahoma-specific alcohol merchant education.  ROCMND was awarded a contract to provide this FREE training statewide.
