ABOUT TIPS

TIPS (Training for Intervention ProcedureS) is a dynamic, skills-based training program designed to prevent intoxication, drunk driving and underage drinking by enhancing the fundamental "people skills" of servers, sellers and consumers of alcohol. 

TIPS gives individuals the knowledge and confidence they need to recognize potential alcohol-related problems and intervene to prevent alcohol-related tragedies. 

TIPS sessions can be administered through a certified TIPS Trainer or through eTIPS, an online training program.

Training conducted through eTIPS is implemented through a computer and served over the web. eTIPS Training is self-paced and can be administered at anytime. 

At the end of either type session, participants complete a multiple-choice exam. Participants who pass the exam receive a certification card, valid for three years in most areas. Exams, grades and other relevant information are maintained online for review.
