Recognition in Maryland
RAM's alcohol awareness certification options meet all the requirements for alcohol awareness training as required by the "Alcoholic Beverages" Article of the Annotated Code of Maryland and are accepted in ALL Maryland counties.
Alcohol Awareness Certification
The “Alcoholic Beverages” Article (formerly Article 2B) requires that retail alcohol beverage establishments maintain at least one licensee or designated employee who is currently certified in an approved alcohol awareness training program. Many counties require a certified person to be on-premise at all times, others allow a brief absence, but generally not more than 2 hours. Consult your local county regulations for specific details.
Event requirements for an alcohol awareness certification include:
- Wine and/or Beer festivals - two agents who are certified in an approved alcohol awareness training program at all times during service. (§2–103.d) (§2–106.d)
