My local city or county government has already required that I be trained for off premise sales of alcohol. How does this State law effect my certification and do I need to be retrained?
It depends. In order for your certification to remain in effect, the individual or company that initially certified you, must become an approved/certified provider through the state and submit a plan to educate you on the new administrative and civil penalties. If your provider completes these requirements, your certification is good until January 2008. If your provider does not complete these requirements, you will need to be retrained by a State approved/certified provider. Check with your trainer to determine whether your certification will remain in effect.
