Murray State College to offer Responsible Alcohol Service Training certification required by state


Tishomingo, Okla. (September 25, 2018) - Beginning October 1, 2018, Responsible Alcohol Service Training will become mandatory in the state of Oklahoma.  The training course offered online by Murray State College will meet state requirements to obtain an employee license to sell or serve alcohol.  The cost to complete certification through Murray State College is $25, and the course will be offered online at

Training certification and a state server license are required for anyone selling alcoholic beverages in a store or serving drinks in a bar or restaurant.  Servers, including waiters, bartenders, and their managers who complete training are more successful in stopping under-age drinking and in recognizing the signs of intoxication.

The MSC course promotes the legal and responsible sale and service of alcoholic beverages and focuses on skills and techniques used to recognize the signs of intoxication.  The course also covers underage drinking, ID checking and how to intervene to keep your customers and place of employment safe. 

“This training is required by the state to help keep our communities and visitors safe.  We are proud to offer access to certification that is affordable and accessible online.  There are many individuals in our communities who will be required to hold this certification, and we encourage them to complete training through Murray State College,” said MSC President Joy McDaniel.

Once an individual has registered for the course and paid the $25 fee, they will receive an MSC email address and information on how to access the college’s online Blackboard system.
