Alcohol, Tobacco Training Goes Hi-Tech in Vermont
MONTPELIER, Vt. -- Educating employees on the ins and outs of selling alcohol and tobacco in the state just got a little easier. The Vermont Department of Liquor Control is offering the online training through Burlington, Vt.-based Global Classroom, according to a report in the Burlington Free Press.
State law requires all businesses that sell alcohol and/or tobacco to train their employees on the laws, rules and regulations or face penalties, according to the newspaper. Dealing with intoxicated customers and underage customers who try to buy alcohol or tobacco are just two topics covered by the training.
The Department of Liquor Control also offers free training seminars across the state and provides training kits that businesses can use in-house. The two online courses meet state certification requirements.
