Alcohol Server Training Program
In 1987, Utah became the second state in the country to require training for all on-premise alcohol servers. Ten states now have mandatory server training laws and six have voluntary programs.
Training for the responsible service of alcohol was not the government’s idea. Before 1987, Utah’s hospitality industry was already providing this training on a voluntary basis through programs developed by the National Restaurant Association and the American Hotel & Motel Association. The resulting legislation established a mandatory Alcohol Training and Education Seminar for employees of businesses that serve alcohol for consumption on the premises.
