TIPS Certification, ServSafe & Serving Alcohol
It's often asked of us, do you offer Michigan TIPS certification? The answer is, Yes, we do offer Michigan responsible alcohol certification.
It’s important to note that TIPS certification, ServSafe, and Serving Alcohol are not “types” of training certification. Instead, all three are “brands” of responsible alcohol training recommended by most employers and businesses. Think of how some people will ask for a Kleenex instead of a tissue. Kleenex is a brand of tissue, not a type of tissue.
Employers will often tell you to get your Michigan TIPS certification or ServSafe certification. You can choose which responsible alcohol seller/server training course you want. Just like how you can buy various brands of tissue at the store. You are not locked into taking any one of these specific training providers' courses.

For over 35 years, Serving Alcohol has trained hundreds of thousands of people, their employers, and businesses. This course is approved by the MLCC and addresses Michigan alcohol laws, regulations, and rules. Many businesses prefer Serving Alcohol training for their staff members.
