Bc Serving It Right Cheat Sheet

Bc Serving It Right Cheat Sheet

If you are working in the liquor industry in British Columbia, you need to complete the Serving It Right (SIR) course and pass the exam. The SIR course is a mandatory responsible beverage service training program that educates you about your legal responsibilities and best practices when serving or selling liquor. Here are some key points and tips to help you prepare for the exam and serve liquor safely and responsibly.


Who needs a SIR certificate?

Generally, all licensees, managers and servers need a SIR certificate. This includes anyone who works in a licensed establishment, such as a pub, restaurant, nightclub, hotel, catering company, or liquor store. You also need a SIR certificate if you are organizing a special event with a liquor licence, such as a wedding, festival, or fundraiser. You don't need a SIR certificate if you have valid out-of-province certification.

How to get a SIR certificate?

You can get a SIR certificate by completing the online course and passing the exam. The online course is an interactive, self-study program that covers topics such as:

  • Signs of intoxication and how to prevent over-service

  • Legal liability and duty of care

  • Reducing impaired driving and violence

  • Preventing the sale of alcohol to minors

  • Creating and enforcing responsible beverage service policies

The online course takes about 4 hours to complete and costs $35 plus GST. You can also download a PDF print version of the course for free. The online exam consists of 40 multiple-choice questions and you need to score at least 80% to pass. You have three attempts for the exam and if you don't pass after your third try, you can re-take the exam for $35. Once you pass the exam, you can download a copy of your certificate. Your SIR certificate expires five years from the issue date.

How to serve liquor safely and responsibly?

Serving liquor safely and responsibly is not only a legal obligation but also a professional skill that can enhance your reputation and customer satisfaction. Here are some tips to help you serve liquor safely and responsibly:

  • Check ID of anyone who looks under 25 years old and refuse service to minors

  • Monitor your customers' consumption and behaviour and refuse service to intoxicated customers

  • Offer food and non-alcoholic beverages to your customers and encourage them to drink water

  • Promote safe transportation options and do not let impaired customers drive

  • Follow your establishment's policies and procedures regarding liquor service

  • Keep records of any incidents or problems related to liquor service

  • Communicate effectively and respectfully with your customers, co-workers, and managers

Serving It Right is not only a requirement but also a resource for you to learn more about responsible beverage service. By following the guidelines and best practices in the course, you can serve liquor safely and responsibly and contribute to a positive and enjoyable experience for your customers.
