TiPS® CONCESSION TRAINING
(Training for Intervention ProcedureS)
A global leader in education and training for the responsible service, sale, and consumption of alcohol. Proven effective by third-party studies. TiPS® is a skills-based training program that is designed to prevent intoxication, underage drinking, and drunk driving.
Program Duration: 3.0 hours
Program Cost: $75.00 per participant
Program Location: At designated location; includes travel within 30-mile radius
Target Audience: stadiums, arenas, theaters, amusement parks, fairs, festivals -- any large venue where alcohol is consumed.
The Challenges: Sporting events, concerts and fairs are family events, so a wholesome atmosphere is critical to success. Intoxicated people can disrupt that atmosphere and cause damage or injury to other patrons. Avoiding alcohol-related problems can be especially challenging within large venues, with the high volume of patrons and the limited time of interaction.
The Solution: TiPS® for Concessions empowers vendors to "make the right call," reducing the risk of alcohol-related incidents and ensuring fun and safety for all patrons. The program focuses on the alcohol-related challenges associated with large venues and takes into account the high volume of patrons and the limited time concessions staff have in which to interact with them. Participants learn techniques to assess patrons in a short period of time and prevent alcohol sales to underage or intoxicated individuals. TiPS® for Concessions is especially important for events that are geared toward young people. Knowing that the staff is trained to prevent underage sales and intoxication reassures parents that their children will be safe at these events. TIPS for Concessions can also help vendors protect themselves from possible litigation should an incident occur.
Additional Benefits: TiPS® training can also improve business and community relations. TiPS® certification demonstrates a commitment to prevent alcohol-related problems and a desire to be part of the solution in society's fight against drunkenness. Liquor boards and local authorities tend to look favorably on establishments that incorporate TiPS®, which can lead to more lenient penalties in the event of an alcohol violation. TiPS® for Concessions can also help an establishment protect itself from possible litigation and often results in reduced liability insurance premiums.
Cost for TiPS® Concession Training includes the training manual, exam processing, and retention of all certification records for 3-years.
