Training for Intervention ProcedureS


The TIPS commercial programs are designed to teach participants how to prevent intoxication, drunk driving and underage drinking among their customers and guests. The programs are based on the same core information, tailored to the program-specific audience.


TIPS classroom sessions are taught by certified TIPS trainers, using video and printed materials to facilitate discussion of the course content.  This brief educational session will introduce you to some of this valuable training and give you information on upcoming training sessions for certification of employees or volunteers in any food and beverage service.
