About this Course
TIPS for Concessions is specifically designed for people who serve or sell alcohol in a concessions setting. This course is ideal for those selling alcohol at sports stadiums, convention centers, arena, festivals, concert halls, fundraisers and other concession outlets.
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 interaction time.
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.
TIPS for Concessions consists of three main areas of focus: Information, Skills Training, and Practice/Rehearsal. In addition to fulfilling regulatory requirements, TIPS training covers mitigation strategies that result in increased professionalism and improved customer service among staff.
Once you complete the lessons, quizzes and pass the final exam with a score of at least 70%, you'll get an official TIPS Certificate that you can print right away!
