TiPS® (Training for Intervention ProcedureS)

TIPS is the global leader in education and training for the responsible service, sale, and consumption of alcohol.


Over the past 35 years, TIPS has certified over 4 million participants and trainers. TIPS training is conducted in all 50 states and the District of Columbia, and in over 50 different countries.

TIPS is a skills-based training program that is designed to prevent intoxication, underage drinking, and drunk driving.


The On Premise program, our core offering, is a five-hour program designed for servers at restaurants, bars, hotels, in-store tastings, or other establishments where alcohol is consumed on the premises. Employees learn strategies that ensure responsible alcohol service, promote professionalism, and enhance customer service skills.

TiPs Works!


With the format and philosophy of the program well-established, we focused our efforts on building the best quality control in our industry. We started by creating a robust record-keeping system, unmatched by any other server training program. Our records have been used in courts, by liquor boards, and internally by corporate clients to verify training and certification. We also developed policies and internal procedures to ensure consistent, high-quality training.


Our efforts have produced results. The insurance industry discounts liquor liability premiums up to 25% for TIPS-certified clients. Courts recognize TIPS as the standard for server training programs. Liquor boards mitigate fines and penalties for violators who incorporate TIPS training at their establishments. And hotels, restaurants, and bars across the country reap the benefits of more professional wait staff and more satisfied customers.

Join the thousands of businesses and organizations that already enjoy the benefits of TIPS.
