TIPS (Training for Intervention ProcedureS) is a dynamic, skills-based training program designed to prevent intoxication, drunk driving and underage drinking by enhancing the fundamental "people skills" ofTIPS servers, sellers and consumers of alcohol. TIPS gives individuals the knowledge and confidence they need to recognize potential alcohol-related problems and intervene to prevent alcohol-related tragedies.

TIPS training sessions vary in length from two to five hours. Eight customized versions of the program address concerns specific to the environment.

TIPS sessions can be administered through a certified TIPS Trainer or through eTIPS, an online training program. Training conducted by a trainer is implemented through video and printed materials to facilitate discussion of the course content. Training conducted through eTIPS is implemented through a computer and served over the Web. eTIPS Training is self-paced and can be administered at any time.
