Alcohol Management Training and Certification

Proper alcohol service is a responsibility we all share, and risk management training is essential to providing a positive and proactive approach to responsible alcohol service. Protect your customers, your brand, your business, and your profits by increasing professional skills, competency, and compliance.

Alcohol service involves many risks. Failure to act responsibly could result in fines, imprisonment, losing your liquor license, increased insurance costs, or losing your business.

TIPS On Premise Certification Training

TIPS (Training for Intervention ProcedureS) is the global leader in education and training for the responsible service, sale, and consumption of alcohol.

This course addresses concerns specific to restaurants, hotels, bars, nightclubs, Banquets, Private Parties and other on-premise liquor license holders where alcohol is served by the drink. Certification is valid for 3 years.

Anyone who serves alcohol in a licensed establishment should take this training and receive their certification, such as Bartenders, Bar Backs, Servers, & Managers. TIPS certification is required my many bars and insurance companies.

ServSafe® Responsible Alcohol Service Training

The ServSafe Alcohol® certification program was developed by the National Restaurant Association.

Bob and Plum Safety conducted opening school lunch Allergen and HACCP training for my staff.  He was engaging and presented the information in a way that was easy for my staff to understand.  The feedback I got from them was very positive.  They feel invested as part of the school lunch team and our year is off to a great start!

This is 3rd time renewing my servsafe. Plum Safety gave the best class I have ever been to. Full of information and made sure all my questions were answered. Kept in contact with me and about test dates and helped me get into a class that work with my schedule. I would highly recommended them to anyone who needs to take the test.

Our brewpub restaurant recently contracted the services of Plum Safety for a ServSafe Alcohol training class. The trainers were very professional, engaging and presented the content in a fun and compelling manner. Role-playing was particularly helpful as it took us out of our comfort zone and confronted us all with situations we always hoped we could avoid, but prepared us for them if and when they occur. All front of house staff were taught how to spot intoxicated guests and to work as a team to assure the safety of the guest, other patrons, our employees and the public in general.  They learned how to prevent our guests from becoming intoxicated past the legal limits, how to deal with unruly guests, how to prevent underage drinkers and how these situations can directly affect our business, their paychecks, and our local community. Sometimes the upfront & the out-of-pocket expense of a safe alcohol service course seems cumbersome, but the value provided and the long-term benefits and savings provided by Plum Safety is beyond measure. Plum Safety ServSafe Alcohol training is a must for anyone who wants to run a legitimate and everlasting business serving alcohol.
