Alabama - TIPS Alcohol Training & Certification

Anyone is eligible to take the TIPS. However, TIPS does not meet the requirements of the state’s voluntary responsible vendor program. The Alabama ABC requires all employees involved in the management, sale, or service of alcoholic beverages to be trained to serve alcohol responsibly. The course content includes:
  • Alabama Alcohol laws
  • Techniques to determine a customer’s age
  • Civil & criminal penalties
  • Techniques to reduce risk associated with alcohol service
Alabama law requires mandatory Responsible Vendor Program participation for on-premise establishments that hold a 020 License and utilize 18 – 20 year old servers. Otherwise, a person must be 21 to serve alcohol in the State of Alabama.
