Responsible Alcohol Management Program (RAMP)


RAMP was created by the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board to educate licensees and their employees on the laws pertaining to their establishment and how to serve alcohol responsibly. The program offers practical advice to many licensees such as; restaurants, hotels, clubs, and distributors.  
RAMP was established as a voluntary certification that provides incentives for licensees who participate and complete all five components. However, the program can be mandated under three conditions: sales to minors, sales to visibly intoxicated patrons, or as part of a conditional licensing agreement.  
RAMP is the umbrella term used to describe this collection of training and resources available to licensees and their employees. Completion of the program provides certification to the licensed establishment for two years. In order to become RAMP-certified, the establishment must complete all 5 parts of the program, which include:
·         Owner/Manager Training
·         Server/Seller Training
·         New Employee Orientation
·         Signage
·        Affidavit Request for RAMP Certification

Detecting Fake IDs
With the quality of today’s fake IDs, it’s becoming more difficult to detect them.  Using an established routine such as the FEAR method of carding reduces minor’s ability to purchase alcohol.
Signs of Intoxication
It's against the law to serve alcoholic beverages to a "visibly intoxicated patron". Servers should use their skills and experience to decide whether a customer is intoxicated. Knowing what to look for could greatly reduce your risk of liability.
