ServSafe Alcohol Training
The Missouri Restaurant Association presents the ServSafe Alcohol Training program from the National Restaurant Association. This program is designed to help our members protect themselves in the wake of the Supreme Court decision that threw out Missouri’s dram shop civil liability protection for restaurateurs and bar operators.
The ServSafe Alcohol training program is designed as a series of the train-the trainer workshops and basic server/bartender training for owners, managers, food and beverage directors, service coordinators, trainers, bartenders, and servers.  This comprehensive training program:

  1. Teaches proper techniques of responsible beverage alcohol service
  2. Alerts participants to alcohol’s effects on the body
  3. Informs operators and managers on how local and state laws affect them
  4. Provides guidance in identifying and handling problem situations through videos and role playing exercises
  5. Presents effective internal communications techniques
  6. Helps reduce the risk of third-party liability lawsuits
  7. Positions restaurant businesses for reduced premiums on their liquor liability insurance coverage
  8. Promotes repeat business by encouraging a relaxed and friendly atmosphere
  9. Unlike other beverage service training programs, ServSafe Alcohol provides a complete program that allows restaurateurs the flexibility and savings of training their own servers on site rather than sending them to expensive and time-consuming classes.
  10. By allowing restaurateurs to schedule and conduct in-house training of wait staff, ServSafe Alcohol provides the knowledge, techniques and information restaurateurs need to protect their businesses in a sensible, cost-effective manner.

ServSafe Alcohol training is available to MRA members for $35 per person. This includes training, training manual and test. Non-members may also attend the training, although seating is limited and first preference will be given to MRA members.  The cost for Non-Members is $50.
