State Of Maine Offers Online Alcohol Seller And Server Training Course

The State of Maine Tuesday said it is offering an online training course for sellers and servers of alcoholic beverages. It is available at www.Maine.gov/online/trainsellserve.

Users of the service can review the course material at their own pace, and take a 50-question online examination. When completed successfully, the users are able to print out a course completion certificate that they have passed the Bureau of Alcoholic Beverages Seller and Server training program.

The fee is $18 for the online training and certification. After beginning the course, users have 15 days to complete the training and exam.

For public safety reasons, the State encourages businesses to ensure that employees are trained, although State law does not require training for sellers and servers of alcoholic beverages.

Tim Poulin, Acting Director of the Bureau of Alcoholic Beverages and Lottery Operations, said, "The information provided through the online training program is the same as provided during the classroom workshops that are held around the state. We expect the online service to be popular since it's convenient and available 24/7 from any location with Internet access."

Maine.gov is the official web portal of the State of Maine and Maine Information Network LLC is the official eGovernment solutions partner for the State. Maine Information Network is a wholly owned subsidiary of the eGovernment firm NIC (EGOV).
