SIR and You

While you are reading through the material, reflect on the purpose of the program and your role in its success. Yes, it is important to pass the exam and get your certificate, but it is also important to remember that you play an important role in a cooperative effort. The growing movement of RBS programs like SIR in North America reflect our society's concerns about alcohol-related problems. You, as a server or seller of alcohol, have an important role to play in an effort that includes the tourism and hospitality industry, the government and the general public. Be sure to carry your SIR card with you!
