New Mexico was one of the first States to enact a mandatory alcohol server certification (NM Statutes Annotated 1978, Chapter 60, Article 6E, officially known as the New Mexico Alcohol Server Education Program. The Program is often referred to as "alcohol training", "alcohol certification", "alcohol permit/license", and/or "alcohol class".
Responsible beverage service training is a valuable public safety program, and benefits our New Mexico communities in many ways. Your feedback on C.A.S.T. classes are greatly appreciated and we encourage you to please contact the Alcohol and Gaming Division with your suggestions and comments.
We hope our website, www.castofnm.com, will provide New Mexico's alcohol establishment owners, servers and sellers with useful licensed beverage training information.
New Mexico's Alcohol Server Education Program is an integral component of DWI prevention in the Land of Enchantment. Alcohol-related problems and DWI crash fatalities continue to be alarming, and New Mexico consistently ranks near the top among all States in both drug and alcohol-related deaths. This also includes: alcohol related crash fatalities, pedestrian fatalities, bicycle fatalities, and motorcycle fatalities by population.
