TIPS Certification is based upon where alcoholic beverages are consumed. Essentially, there are two consumption areas; On-premise and Off-premise. In order for you to choose the right course you need to understand the meaning of these terms. Consider how alcohol is consumed where you work. Is it consumed on the premises for immediate consumption? Or do you sell sealed containers or packages for consumption at-home?


If you sell alcoholic beverages in open containers or by-the-drink you work at an on-premise establishment such as a restaurant, bar, nightclub and your job description is likely to be a bar manager, bartender, waitress, server, casino worker, etc.


Off -premise locations include grocery stores, liquor stores, beverage barns or anywhere alcohol is sold in sealed containers or packages for consumption off the premises.
