MEXICO — River Valley Rising will host a certified Responsible Beverage Service class from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday, April 3, at Med-Care Ambulance, 209 Highland Terrace.

The training will use the Training for Intervention Procedures by Servers, or TIPS, program approved by the Maine Bureau of Alcoholic Beverages & Lottery Operations.

There is no cost to attend but participants must register for the 15 spots. Lunch will not be provided but there will be a break for lunch.

Responsible beverage service training programs give owners, managers and staff of establishments that serve alcohol knowledge and skills to help them serve alcohol responsibly and fulfill the legal requirements of alcohol service.

Training may address such issues as checking IDs for false detection and carding; identifying intoxicated patrons and refusing service to them; intervening to prevent intoxicated patrons from driving; identifying minors and visibly intoxicated person; and prevention of costly violations.

Those who complete the training will be registered through the state as a certified server.
