Responsible Alcohol Management Program (RAMP)


Act 141 of 2000 established the Responsible Alcohol Management Program (RAMP), a voluntary certification that provides incentives for licensees that participate and complete all five components: Owner/Manager Training, Server/Seller Training, New Employee Orientation, Signage and Affidavit Request for RAMP Certification.

RAMP includes training and resources available to licensees their employees, so that they may understand and employ responsible alcohol management practices.

 RAMP can be mandated under three conditions: sales to minors, sales to visibly intoxicated patrons, or as part of a conditional licensing agreement.  

Licensees are encouraged to explore and complete the RAMP certification, which is designed to assist licensees in educating new hires, current employees and themselves in legal and responsible alcohol service.
