Louisiana RVP TIPS Certification Online


Since the launch of the Louisiana Responsible Vendor Program in 1997, TIPS has trained and permitted thousands of servers in responsible alcohol service in Louisiana in it's classroom version. TIPS helps Louisiana licensees comply with jurisdiction-specific liquor laws, and teaches strategies to ensure responsible alcohol service and prevent illegal alcohol sales to underage and/or intoxicated guests. Additionally, this program can help Louisiana alcohol licensees reduce exposure to alcohol liability lawsuits, lower insurance rates, and improved customer satisfaction.

The Louisiana Responsible Vendor Mandatory Program has given approval to the eTIPS On-Premise course. At this time off-premise customers (liquor, convenience and grocery stores) should also take the On-Premise course listed on this page for RVP compliance.

Louisiana law requires servers of alcohol to complete a Responsible Vendor (RV) class and obtain an RV Server Permit within 45 days of employment. With the ATC's approval of eTIPS On Premise - Louisiana, servers can now earn the required alcohol server training permits online as well as through the TIPS for On Premise classroom course.

With so much at stake, TIPS has made it less complicated for prospective alcohol servers to get certified. By providing an online platform, certification only take 2 to 3 hours at a much lower cost and in an environment where you can go at your own pace. Take the course at home or anywhere with a wifi connection.
