On April 18, the Michigan Liquor Control Commission (MLCC) approved new online responsible alcohol training and certification programs for servers at Michigan stadiums and gaming facilities. The programs are called eTIPS Concessions – Michigan and eTIPS Gaming –Michigan. eTIPS Concessions is designed for concessionaires who serve and sell alcohol in stadiums, arenas, and festivals, and eTIPS Gaming is tailored specifically for casino employees. 

Since 2001, the MLCC has required alcohol server training for licensees obtaining new on-premise licenses or transferring more than 50% interest in existing on-premise licenses. TIPS (Training for Intervention ProcedureS) classroom training was one of the first approved alcohol server training programs in Michigan. Prior to 2014, the only way to obtain MLCC-approved certification was through classroom sessions conducted by certified TIPS trainers.

eTIPS offers Michigan licensees a convenient online option for obtaining MLCC-approved certification. These programs focus on the unique challenges of responsible service in stadiums and casinos. The courses are customized to deliver information on the laws and regulations unique to the state of Michigan. Additionally, the eTIPS programs can help Michigan licensees reduce exposure to alcohol liability lawsuits, lower insurance rates, and improve customer satisfaction.  

Since 1982, TIPS has trained and certified more than 250,000 individuals in responsible alcohol service in the state of Michigan. For more information please see the original press release from Health Communications Inc. or visit www.gettips.com.
