Maryland bartenders learning when enough is enough

Maryland bartenders learning when enough is enough

The state of Maryland is now requiring bartenders to take a course, teaching them not how to pour drinks but how many drinks to pour. These classes last nearly three hours.
The Maryland State Comptroller is proposing to create standardized rules for trainers, signing off alcohol awareness permits. Some of the mandatory components include: understanding the law of alcohol services, teaching how alcohol works in the body, how alcohol affects a person's behavior, how to control alcohol consumption, and how to identify a minor.
The class is mandatory for anyone serving liquor, because at the end of the night a bartender can save someone's life.
"We want these people to drink responsibly and to recognize certain things so they won't leave their establishments intoxicated," said Orlyn Oestereich, from Tip's Trainer in Maryland.
