Responsible alcohol management reduces youth access to alcohol and protects the public, licensees and employees. TIPS is the most internationally and nationally recognized alcohol training program by insurance agencies and state regulators.
This class is held on-site at your location so that you may train your team properly and thoroughly. The class is 3-5 hours and can be customized to meet the needs of the operator with house policies and specific procedures.
This program is complete when participants take a 40 question final exam the end of the 3-5 hour training session under the supervision of one of our instructors.
