Pennsylvania RAMP Server/Seller Training

The Responsible Alcohol Management Program (RAMP) Server/Seller program was developed by the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board. This program is designed specifically for businesses that have a liquor license in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania in order to prevent the sale or service of alcohol to a visibly intoxicated patron or minor.  Successful completion of the program and passing of the exam with an 80% or better will merit a certificate valid for two years in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.  This satisfies one of the five parts necessary for RAMP compliance. Please note, Paster Training is not an employee of the PLCB.
