Training Partnership Kicks Off April 19th In Kingston

We’re joining once again with the State Liquor Authority to conduct a statewide series of ABC Law and ATAP trainings. The first session is being held on Tuesday, April 19, 2016 at the Wiltwyck Golf Course located at 404 Steward Lane in Kingston. This training program is presented free of charge thanks to the support of Anheuser-Busch, Empire Merchants North, Heineken USA, MillerCoors and Southern Wine & Spirits.

The morning session, the ABC’s of the ABC Law, focuses on the responsibilities of licensees in maintaining a premise that is in compliance with the Alcoholic Beverage Control law. This training covers the topics vital to keeping on-premises establishments in compliance with the law. This session will be held from 10:00 am – 1:00 pm. Doors open at 9:30 am.

The afternoon session, the Alcohol Training Awareness Program (ATAP), addresses the responsibilities of servers to prevent sales to minors and sales to visibly intoxicated patrons. Participation in ATAP training can be used as part of a defense to an SLA violation, to reduce a penalty issued by the SLA and may reduce your insurance rates. Servers can also use their ATAP certification as a defense a criminal charge of an illegal sale. The ATAP session is being held 1:30 pm – 3:00 pm. Registration begins at 1:00 pm.
