Frank Lyons of BC Consultants is conducting the training. Frank is a certified instructor with the Maine Criminal Justice Academy, instructing Maine Liquor laws, forgery and multi-jurisdictional enforcement. It is Frank's earnest belief that through proper training and good policies, many of the violations that liquor licenses currently find themselves involved with can be avoided. It was with that ambition in mind that he developed the "Seller/Server Training" program to provide affordable State of Maine approved training to licensees' throughout the state.
