What is RAMP?

RAMP, or Responsible Alcohol Management Program, was established through Act 141 of 2000. It is a voluntary certification program that provides incentives to liquor licensees in Pennsylvania. Although full RAMP certification is voluntary for most licensees, the Server/Seller training component is mandatory. So are the benefits to a licensee who completes RAMP certification worth it? A RAMP certified licensee receives the following benefits:

  Possible discount for liquor liability insurance
  Knowledgeable, responsible, well-trained alcohol service staff and management
  Recognition as a responsible licensee in the community
  Less likelihood of dram shop liability
  Possible reduction in fines and penalties issued by an Administrative Law Judge if the licensee is found guilty of serving alcohol to a minor or visibly intoxicated patron

RAMP Certification for Licensees consists of five steps:

  1. 1. Owner/Manager Training – this training focuses on those most responsible for determining daily operations and policies – the owner and/or manager. In order to comply, the owner and/or manager of record must attend a free training session offered by the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board (PLCB) at various centrally-located sites.
  2. 2. Alcohol Server/ Seller Training – this training is specifically for a licensee’s alcohol service staff. This staff consists of anyone involved with the service of alcoholic beverages and or the checking of identification. This training is conducted by PLCB-approved independent trainers. To comply, all employees must complete this training within 90 days of hire.
  3. 3. New Employee Orientation – orientation training must be provided to each member of the licensee’s current alcohol service staff and to each new hire within thirty days of their hire. The PLCB will provide a checklist and appropriate learning methods to the licensee. The licensee is required to keep records of the appropriate training.
  4. 4. Signage – licensees are responsible for posting signs regarding responsible alcohol service. There is signage available from the PLCB; however the licensee may use other signage that is the equivalent of that provided by the PLCB. The signage must be displayed where it is readily visible to all patrons. “Signage must include at least the following information: Acceptable forms of ID (Drivers license and/or Commonwealth issued ID cards for non-drivers) & Refusal of alcohol service to minors and visibly intoxicated patrons.
  5. 5. Certification Compliance Appointment and Visit – the final component consists of a compliance visit from the Regional RAMP Representative. After successful completion of the four above-listed components, a licensee must arrange a visit by their Regional RAMP Representative to receive official PLCB-RAMP Certification. At that time the RAMP Representative will review the licensee’s records and complete the necessary documentation.
