In West Virginia there aren’t any state regulations in place that require a server or bartender to be licensed in order to sell alcohol.
Thus, server-training is not required nor regulated by the state.
It is important to keep in mind some employers will require bartenders to complete server-training regardless of state jurisdiction.
