“Under 21 No Can” Server Training Videos
“Under 21 No Can” server training videos is a partnership with the Department of the Attorney General and County Departments of Liquor Control on Hawaii, Maui, Kauai, and Oahu. These two videos were developed to provide servers who work “on-premise” (restaurants, bars, etc.) and sellers who work “off-premise” (retailers, grocery stores, etc.) with information on the consequences of selling alcohol to those who are under 21 years old.
The videos are meant to supplement the employee training provided to licensees by the Department of Liquor Control on Hawaii, Maui, Kauai, and Oahu. It is not meant to replace existing or future training, nor is it intended to be the sole training tool utilized by on-premise or off-premise establishments.
