Serving It Right

The Serving it Right program provides information on the effects of alcohol and techniques to prevent over-service. Awareness of Responsible Beverage Service helps to develop a more positive environment for owners, managers and service providers and their clients. Persons who are 16 years of age can take S.I.R. with limitations of its application in the workplace. Proof of age is required.

What is Serving It Right?

Serving It Right is British Columbia’s mandatory self-study course that educates licensees, managers and servers about their legal responsibilities when serving alcohol, and provides effective techniques to prevent problems related to over-service. Serving It Right is administered by go2HR – BC’s tourism industry human resource association.
