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)
  • Catered Events – at least one employee certified by an alcohol awareness program must be on-premise at all times during the catered event. (§6–703.1.f.2)
  • Sampling at Farmer’s Markets – an agent must be present who is certified by an approved alcohol awareness program. (§2–105.f)

Exams are available at our Columbia office.
You must have your completion voucher from the online training to take the certification exam.
