TIPS Certification, ServSafe & Serving Alcohol
It's often asked of us, do you offer Montana tips certification? The answer is, Yes, we do offer Montana responsible alcohol server certification.
It’s important to note that Montana TIPS certification, ServSafe, and Serving Alcohol are not “types” of alcohol training courses. Instead, all three are “brands” of state-approved 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. Just as this training course is a type of training course just like the TIPs certification course.
Employers might tell you to get Montana 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.
