Responsible Vendor Training
TiPS For On-Premise
Restaurants and bars are great places for people to socialize and have a good time. Unfortunately, that good time can get out of hand when people misuse alcohol. Servers must be able to deal with problem behaviors and the challenges associated with underage drinking and drunk driving.
Whether you serve cocktails in a restaurant or bar, sell beer at a convenience or liquor store, or offer wine and other spirits in your own home, you could be held liable, or responsible, should one of your patrons, customers, guests or friends become intoxicated and cause damage to himself, others or property. Being certified in a quality alcohol service training program can prevent some of the problems that result from the misuse of alcohol.
The On Premise program is designed for servers at restaurants, bars, hotels, in-store tastings, or other establishments where alcohol is consumed on the premises. You will learn strategies that ensure responsible alcohol service, promote professionalism, and enhance customer service skills. In short, this class will increase your value as a server or bartender. Cost: $55 per student
Tips For Concessions
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.
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. Cost: $45 per student
