Server Training

McGill University requires that at least one Event Coordinator and all event servers at all student events attend a three-hour Server Training session.  This applies to ALL STUDENT EVENTS held on campus involving alcohol. The University will not issue alcohol permits or book an event and/or book a room until this training is complete, so if you're planning a party you will want to be trained well in advance.  Server Training Badges must be worn by servers at all times they are serving alcohol at on-campus events. You will receive your badge at the session you attend.


About Server Training

The Server Training Program educates student alcohol providers about their legal responsibilities as servers, and provides practical methods for ensuring responsible consumption. The program:

  • promotes responsible alcohol practices;
  • increases the participants' understanding of campus policies and regulations;
  • encourages an attitude that places as a priority the well-being, health, security and safety of all event attendees;
  • increases participants' awareness of civil liability to individuals and the university in relation to alcohol sales and service;
  • to increase the participant's understanding of the liquor laws in Quebec and related regulations.

Please note : This is NOT a bartending course.
