Bartenders for Camana Bay restaurants recently went through several hours of training on how to tell when patrons have had enough to drink.
The Training for Intervention Procedures was held May 28 and more than 15 food and beverage outlets participated. The program lasted three to five hours for participants and included a certification exam. Those passing the exam received a three-year, internationally recognized certification.
“It is important to us that Camana Bay remains a safe and enjoyable environment for all of us who live, visit and work here,” Dart Real Estate vice president Linda Podlaski said in a news release. “Offering the TIPS training program to our bars and restaurants is just one initiative that we believe supports these goals.”
The program is conducted by the National Drug Council. The agency has been running the sessions for 14 years.
