As a result of the high volume of Smart Serve liquor training recertifications underway, the AGCO is extending the period to complete recertification for those whose certificates are set to expire. Certificates with an expiry date between June 30, 2023 and August 31, 2023 will now remain valid until September 1, 2023.

This means that:

  • Liquor training certificates issued before September 1, 2018 will remain valid until August 31, 2023 at 11:59 p.m. This includes Smart Serve certificates and certificates issued prior to 1995 from the Server Intervention Program (SIP).
  • Smart Serve certificates issued on or after September 1, 2018 will expire five years from the date of issuance (e.g., a certificate obtained on September 15, 2018, will expire on September 14, 2023 at 11:59 p.m.).

The AGCO first announced a new five-year term for all new and existing Smart Serve liquor training certifications on November 9, 2021. Certificate-holders were initially invited to recertify starting July 1, 2022, with no certificates expiring until at least July 1, 2023.

More information on how to recertify can be found on Smart Serve’s website.
