360training Expands Alcohol Training With The Addition Of 11 TIPS Courses Including California RBS
AUSTIN, Texas, April 18, 2022 — After acquiring TIPSⓇ (GetTIPS.com) and TIPSCertified.com in October 2021 and March 2022, respectively, 360training.com is expanding its catalog of alcohol seller-server training by launching its first batch of TIPS alcohol courses across seven states: California, Georgia, Delaware, Montana, Rhode Island, South Dakota, and Tennessee.
What is California Responsible Beverage Server (RBS) Training?
TIPS is launching its newly approved California Responsible Beverage Server course. While previous TIPS courses have been approved by the California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC), this updated course specifically satisfies The Responsible Beverage Service Training Act (AB 1221), which requires RBS training for on-premise licensees, managers, and alcohol servers.
The California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) designed these new regulations to reduce the risks of harm from alcohol in California communities. The course helps ensure that anyone who serves alcohol understands the dangers of underage drinking and over-serving intoxicated customers. It is required by August 31, 2022.
What TIPS Courses are Currently Available on 360training?
360training will continue transitioning additional TIPS alcohol seller-server courses to our powerful training platform and, in the coming months, will offer alcohol training anywhere in the United States. In addition to being available on GetTIPS.com, all certifications will be available on 360training’s Food & Beverage training site.
