Free licensee education on alcohol, drug training Thursday
In an effort to reduce the accessibility of alcohol to youth in Tulare County and to encourage local merchants to examine and update their current policies, the National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence of Tulare County and the Visalia Police Department are hosting a free Licensee Education on Alcohol and Drug Training.
The training will take place from noon to 4 p.m. Thursday at the Professional Development Center, 4031 W. Noble Ave., Visalia.
The LEAD program, presented by the state Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control, is designed to provide updated information to on-sale and off-sale licensees and their employees on the special responsibilities associated with selling or serving alcoholic beverages.
Merchants who are uncertain if their business policies are up to date, if their employees are correctly trained to examine identification cards presented to them at the time of purchase, if they believe decoy operations are an entrapment, or if it’s been more than two years since they completed a responsible beverage servers training, are encouraged to participate. The training is designed to answer these questions and is free for owners, managers, supervisors and employees.
For more information or to register, call the National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence of Tulare County at 688-2994.
