What is Serving It Right?

Serving It Right is British Columbia's mandatory self-study course that educates licensees, managers and servers about their legal responsibilities when serving alcohol, and provides effective techniques to prevent problems related to over-service.

As a server of alcohol in a licenced establishment, it is important to be aware that alcohol consumption comes with risks. Overconsumption can cause harm to the consumer, or lower their inhibitions, leading to behaviors such as sexualized violence, aggression and harassment.  This training will help you serve alcohol in a manner that reduces risks for you and the patrons.
