Although responsible alcohol training is not mandated by the state of Ohio many Ohio Insurance companies have made certification mandatory for the bars, restaurants and hotels to purchase liquor liability insurance. The TIPS Alcohol Training Online version is accepted statewide for use in Ohio as well as over 35 additional states.

Wherever your new career as a Bartender takes you, you will be expected to practice responsible alcohol service.  Good customer service includes managing the crowd while insuring everyone is enjoying themselves. 

Training for Intervention Procedures gives you the knowledge to recognize standards for reasonable behavior, assess a guest’s level of intoxication, the proper procedure for checking ID’s and how to handle the difficult situation of an intoxicated guest.  Your efforts to gain this training and implementing it in your daily service of the public also shows your “due diligence” in the event of a legal action.
