The Center for Prevention and Counseling will offer a free TIPS Responsible Beverage Server training on Wednesday, Sept. 17, 2014 at Louise Childs Library, 21 Sparta-Stanhope Road, from 9:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m.

The course includes instructing servers how to prevent drunk driving, underage drinking, and intervening when alcohol is abused. Session participants will become certified in the Training for Intervention Procedures program and will receive a TIPS certification card valid for three years. Each establishment represented also will receive 2014 ID Checking Guide Books and an Incident Report Binder, free of charge ($55 value).

Coffee and refreshments will be provided.

TIPS trainings enhance the people skills of the servers, sellers, and consumers of alcohol. Program participants are trained by a certified instructor to detect the signs of intoxication and gain the confidence needed to intervene effectively to prevent alcohol related problems. Participants also learn to identify underage people and people who are already intoxicated. Participants learn with other alcohol servers how best to recognize and address drunk patrons, identify underage drinkers, and implement appropriate measures encouraging a responsible, safe and productive establishment.

Participants are tested after the training, which includes watching video examples of scenarios, role playing with each other, and discussing real situations that might occur in their places of business. This training offers a complimentary “logbook” for each establishment where every employee can record information about their shift verifying that the staff and business took every step to address situations responsibly.

Registration is required and limited; please contact Tina at 973-383-4787 extension 236 or email tina@centerforprevention.org.
