Lake Oswego, OR (PRWEB) August 31, 2009
In Oregon, if you sell alcohol and have a liquor license through the Oregon Liquor Control Commission (OLCC) you could receive a several hundred to several thousand dollar fine for selling alcohol to a minor. And, if you sell too many times in two years your license to sell alcohol can be revoked.
The Oregon Liquor Control Commission has an incentive program for licensees to keep them on track and reduce the chances of accidental sales to minors due to poor training. The "Responsible Vendor Program" which is a self certifying program that when a licensee is in compliance with its requirements and they mistakenly sell, or their employee sells alcohol to a minor; their fines are reduced significantly AND they can NEVER be revoked.
One of the required elements of being in compliance is to give your employees Quarterly Training. To make this task easier,more informative and consistent; Statewide Compliance Training of Oregon (SCT) which is operated by FORMER OLCC INSPECTORS, created a 20 minute training video.
Once you purchase the Responsible Vendor Training DVD you can show it as many times as you like. So the $200.00 price tag is much more bearable. "Show it to your employees every quarter and document that you did and what day they watched it, that will keep you in compliance with that requirement" Says Alan Espasandin, CFO of Statewide Compliance Training. "The DVD isn't just for licensees that are in the program, any licensee and their employees can benefit from this training...it is a nice "refresher" of the basic rules and laws that they must follow every day; and by taking this training it may help reduce their fines in other areas should they have violations."
The DVD has some lighter and humorous moments but touches on the very serious laws about selling alcohol to minors, checking ID, selling to visibly intoxicated patrons (VIPs) or allowing a VIP to consume alcohol. SCT also included a short video, more on the very serious side, called "Last Call." A testimony oriented video produced by the Oregon Liquor Control Commission (OLCC) and the Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT). If you just want to see the video "Last Call" you can view that on their website http://www.sctuniversity.com FOR FREE, or see it on the OLCC homepage; and there is a short teaser video from their RVP Training to give you an idea of what their video is like.
The DVD can be purchased on their website http://www.sctuniversity.com by using PayPal or a credit card. The shipping is free.
Statewide Compliance Training has plans for more training DVD's in the future. Their compliance training does not stop at the alcohol industry; they also provide training and certifications in the maritime security industry.
