Responsible Alcohol Management Program (RAMP) Training

The Armstrong Center for Community Learning (ACCL) will host Responsible Alcohol Management Program (RAMP) training to businesses in the community on Wednesday, November 10, 2021. Click here for more information on the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board website.


PA legislation enacted on June 18, 2001 established the RAMP, which is a voluntary certification that provides incentives for licensees who participate and complete five components.


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.


Although PA RAMP certification is voluntary for many licensees, it can be mandatory under the following circumstances:

  • For any licensee who has been found guilty by an Administrative Law Judge of sales to minors or visibly intoxicated persons;
  • As part of a conditional licensing agreement;
  • Prior to obtaining a wine expanded permit.


In order to comply, the establishment must complete all parts of the program, which include:

  • Owner/Manager Training
  • Server/Seller Training
  • New Employee Orientation
  • Signage
