TIPS Concessions Alcohol Course for STADIUMS, ARENAS, THEATERS, CONCERTS, fairs, amusement parks and FESTIVALS


The TIPS Concessions training course is an online program designed to teach participants to prevent intoxication, drunk driving and underage drinking among the people to whom they sell or serve alcohol.

Primese GirlThis 2 to 3 hour online course addresses concerns specific to stadiums, arenas, theaters, concert halls, fairs, amusement parks and festivals. These venues serve alcohol by the drink and sales levels can be incredibly high.

Servers working at these venues face unique challenges and this course was designed for these workers. eTIPS concessions certification is valid for 3 years.

In the high-volume venues, it can be difficult to determine the difference between people enjoying themselves and those who may be getting into trouble with alcohol. The concessions course uses videos and scenarios from these types of venues and makes the course easier to understand for the students and to apply their knowledge in real life.
