Why choose tips 1

Pioneer In Alcohol Safety

Originally introduced in 1982, TIPS On-Premise was developed by professionals in the fields of alcohol abuse, adult education, hospitality, and psychology as a tool to teach servers and bartenders to prevent alcohol abuse among customers. This radical strategy to teach servers and bartenders standard practices for the service of alcohol and how to look for signs of intoxication became the industry standard.

Very soon, TIPS met industry requests for programs tailored to other environments with specific scenes and strategies for those industries. Today, TIPS offers courses specific to On-Premise, Off-Premise, Delivery, Gaming, Concessions, and University.

Whether required by law in your state or not, alcohol server and seller training helps you identify and prevent alcoholic beverages from getting in the hands of minors or intoxicated persons. TIPS is trusted to provide training that goes deeper into situations than just covering regulations or BAC. TIPS develops your "people skills" for handling specific situations and maintain a safe environment.
