LEWISTON – Michael Klemanski will hold a training session to promote alcohol safety on Saturday, March 20, at Lewiston High School. The Training for Intervention Procedures program will teach local servers of alcohol how to prevent drunk driving, underage drinking and alcohol abuse. Participants will become certified in the program – the leading alcohol server training program in the country.

The training enhances the people skills of the servers, sellers and consumers of alcohol. Participants are trained by certified instructors to detect the signs of intoxication and gain the confidence needed to intervene effectively to prevent alcohol-related problems. Participants also learn to identify underage people and people who are already intoxicated.

The program offers eight versions, each tailored to the specific sites where alcohol is sold or consumed. To date, more than 750,000 people nationwide and in 22 foreign countries have been TIPS-certified.

Klemanski has been involved with the program for six years and has certified hundreds of servers.

For information and registration, contact the Lewiston Adult Education office at 156 East Ave. or call 795-4141 or 784-2928.
