April 2020

Program updates from the Responsible Beverage Service Training Program (RBSTP) team including regulations and rulemaking, and program information.

Regulations and Rulemaking Update

The Department  would like to thank everyone who has taken the time to submit comments and help shape California’s Responsible Beverage Service Training Program (RBSTP) to date. The latest regulatory and rulemaking language for this program has been resubmitted to the Office of Administrative Law (OAL) for their review after some minor changes were requested.  OAL now has thirty business days to approve the package for publication and inclusion in the California Code of Regulations or reject and ask for more changes to clarify. The deadline is May 20, 2020. The Department will update the Regulations and Rulemaking page on our website if it receives notice of the OAL decision prior to that date.

Program Information Update

In consideration of recent events of COVID-19, the Department and the RBSTP team have decided that the next round of upcoming stakeholder meetings for prospective RBS training providers will be hosted online as virtual meetings.

The current timeline for accepting RBS training provider applications is projected for Summer 2020 with training being available to the public beginning in the late Fall of 2020/Winter 2020. We will send an email notification via the mailing list announcing when the Department will begin accepting RBS training provider applications. The cost of the applications will be $1000.00 per training course plus an additional cost of fingerprint fees for certain persons associated with the applicant entity.

Thank you to all who participated in the March Survey. The RBSTP team has analyzed the responses to the questions and has developed a set of follow-up questions for prospective training providers to answer. The follow-up survey will feature some of the questions were previously asked, but the response options have been refined for clarity (Note: the survey is now closed).
