Working Together Coalition offers Responsible Beverage Server Training

Two Responsible Beverage Server Training (RBST) classes will be offered to area businesses that serve alcohol.

The first class will be at 9 a.m. Tuesday, Feb. 25, at the 50 Lakes Bar & Bottle Shop, located at 40430 County Road 3 in Fifty Lakes.

A second class will be at 2 p.m. Tuesday, March 18, at the Pine River-Backus Family Center, located at 245 Barclay Ave., Pine River.

The Working Together Coalition (WTC) is offering the training to any business with a liquor license. RBST equips alcohol servers and sellers with the knowledge and skill they need to comply with alcohol beverage service laws and prevent underage drinking, excessive alcohol consumption and related harms.

This year’s training focuses on prevention of over serving customers, of impaired driving and of underage sales as well as recognizing fraudulent IDs.

This training is offered free of charge, but registration is required. Kelly Felton, coalition coordinator for the WTC, will conduct the training. Felton is a RBS regional trainer for Minnesota.

To schedule employees for RBST, or for more information, contact John Grimley at 218-838-2647 or Class sizes are limited.
