Why Should I Take the TIPS Online Training Course for Washington?

The state of Washington requires all servers of alcohol in Washington to have a Class 12 Permit or Class 13 Permit. Many restaurant chains, hotels and upscale establishments require all of their staff to have the TIPS certification to serve alcohol for their company.

Getting your Washington Class 12 Permit or Washington Class 13 Permit through TIPS satifies both requirements. Taking your Washington MAST alcohol training through another company could result in you having to take both courses to work at an upscale hotel, chain restaurant or resort that has made TIPS training mandatory. Save your time and money by satisying both requirements with the Washington MAST approved TIPS online training.
