The Cambria County Drug & Alcohol Program will host a free Responsible Alcohol Management Program (RAMP) Server/Seller Training in conjunction with The Learning Lamp to help organizations safely serve alcohol.

The training will be held from 6 to 8:30 p.m. Aug. 4 at the Young Peoples Community Center, 300 Prave St., Ebensburg, with seating limited to 40 participants.

The training helps to ensure that employees and volunteers know how to safely serve alcohol by recognizing the signs of intoxication and ensuring customers are 21 or older.

According to Fred Oliveros, administrator of the Cambria County Drug and Alcohol Program, this is the first year that the program has sponsored the training. He added that the county is helping to expand access to the program.

“We are improving access to the training by offering the training in different geographical locations throughout the county,” he said. “The in-person group setting permits participants to ask the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board-approved trainer questions about specific situations that have been encountered and promotes discussion.”

Registration is required. Individuals can register online at More information is available by contacting prevention specialist Elizabeth ElBayly at 814-262-0732, ext. 287, or
