YES And PACT Offer Free TIPS Training For Businesses Serving Or Selling

The pandemic has brought many new guidelines and restrictions to our retail and service establishments that serve and sell alcohol. To assist local businesses, YES Community Counseling Center (YESCCC) is hosting free TIPS Training, a skills-based training designed to prevent intoxication, drunk driving and underage drinking. TIPS is supported by Farmingdale State College’s Alcohol & Drug Abuse Prevention Team (ADAPT), Levittown Community Action Coalition (LCAC), Massapequa Takes Action Coalition (MTAC), the Town of Hempstead, Town of Oyster Bay, and the Nassau County Police Department.

Free Alcohol Awareness Training is offered to on and off-premise businesses by YES Community Counseling Center’s PACT Initiative. TIPS is supported by Farmingdale State College’s Alcohol & Drug Abuse Prevention Team (ADAPT), Levittown Community Action Coalition (LCAC), Massapequa Takes Action Coalition (MTAC), the Town of Hempstead, Town of Oyster Bay and the Nassau County Police Department.

Businesses are invited to the innovative VIRTUAL training which seeks to enhance the fundamental “people skills” of servers, sellers and consumers of alcohol. In addition, TIPS training can reduce exposure to alcohol liability lawsuits and reduce penalties for alcohol violations; lower insurance premiums; improve customer service and satisfaction; and promote community safety.

TIPS will be offered virtually to local off-premise businesses and employees (liquor, grocery, convenience, retail, etc.) on Wednesday, April 28, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and on-premise businesses (bars, restaurants, etc.) and their employees on Thursday, April 29, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. TIPS (Training Intervention ProcedureS) is an approved alcohol training awareness program by the New York State Liquor Authority. The training is part of YESCCC’s Partnering in Action Change for Tomorrow (PACT) federal grant initiative and its partnering coalitions’ mission to reduce underage and binge drinking, intoxication and drunk driving.
If you are a business that serves or sells alcohol and are interested in registering yourself or your employee(s) for the virtual TIPS Training, contact PACT at pact@yesccc.org or at 516-799-3203, ext. 230.
