The Oregon Restaurant & Lodging Association’s Alcohol Server Education course is online training for alcohol servers needing to get a service permit. ORLA’s revolutionized, online course is approved by the OLCC and is valid STATEWIDE. Note our course fee does not include your permit application or testing fee, which is required separately by the OLCC.

This initial course covers important curriculum requirements from the OLCC including: the effects of alcohol on the body and behavior, interaction of alcohol with other drugs, Oregon’s alcohol sale and service laws, checking ID, visible signs of intoxication, drunk driving laws, intervention techniques for dealing with intoxicated and underage customers, and responsible advertising, marketing, and management procedures. A handbook (as adopted from the OLCC) is available for your review anytime during the course and can be printed for your reference.

According to Oregon law, anyone who participates in any manner in mixing, selling or serving alcohol for drinking on the premises and anyone who manages these people, must have a valid liquor license or service permit issued by the OLCC.

This course provides a convenient and practical way to get the training required for certification. Once you complete the training and pass the practice test and download the course completion receipt you need to go to the OLCC’s website to submit an application, take the test and pay the applicable fees. If you pass, you may download and print your OLCC permit in the OLCC portal, and it will valid statewide for 5 years.
