West Virginia University at Parkersburg will offer the Training for Intervention Procedures (TIPS) course starting Tuesday, January 27. The course is $45 per participant; special group discounts may apply.
TIPS teaches intervention skills used to prevent alcohol related problems. The 5-hour training is ideal for servers and sellers of alcohol, as well as establishments wishing to benefit from TIPS certified employees. The class provides training for the responsible service, sale and consumption of alcohol. It is designed to prevent intoxication, underage drinking and drunk driving.
