Liquor - Responsible Vendor Trainers

Dear Responsible Vendor Trainers,
 
The Colorado Liquor Enforcement held a series of Working Groups last year, which identified two items directly related to responsible vendor training.  
 
1.  Language was added to Regulation 47-605 that mandates records retention for entities who provide responsible vendor training.  Below is the added language effective February 14, 2015.
 
F. Records Retention
 
The certified seller – server training program providers for the Responsible Alcohol Beverage Vendor Program must keep proof of attendance and records of successful completion of the training for a minimum of three (3) years and make the records available to the Liquor Enforcement Division upon request.
 
2. The Division also decided to allow responsible vendor trainers to use Live Streaming for education and testing.  To make this clear, "Live Streaming" is not the same as an on-Line training program.  In order to use live streaming, the trainer needs to have live interaction with the students where both can see each other and the test must be administered in a way not to compromise the results.  If you are interested in offering "Live Streaming" Responsible Vendor Training, please complete the attached application form and provide the Liquor Enforcement Division a clear and concise procedure how you will offer such training to ensure live, face to face training is taking place and testing is completed by the person who is actually signed up for the class. 
 
Once approved for live-streaming training, the Division will add the term "Live Streaming Offered" next to the Approved Vendor list on our website who will be offering this training.   As we do not wish to seem biased... we would like to post them all at once.   Please respond to this email by March 20, 2015 if you want the added notation of providing live streaming.
 
The Division is also going to use this new application form for any new organization who wishes to be a Responsible Vendor trainer.
