What is RAMP?


RAMP Certification consists of four program prerequisites, that upon successful completion, enables licensees to apply for RAMP Certification which is then approved by the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board (PLCB).  Completion of the program provides certification to the licensed establishment for two years. RAMP certification is voluntary for many licensees but 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 (CLA).
  • Prior to obtaining a wine expanded permit.
There are four prerequisites of RAMP certification which include: Owner/Manager Training, Server/Seller Training, New Employee Orientation, and Signage.

So what does all this mean to you? ….the server and/or bartender?  It means that you as a server or bartender are responsible for taking the RAMP Server/Seller Training course which we offer here on RAMP-Certification.com.  Once you pass the training course, you will be RAMP trained for a period of 2 years!  You can save and print your RAMP Certificate as soon as you are done the course.
