Each time employees stop service to a minor or intoxicated person, they are protecting themselves, the business, and the community from serious consequences. The Retailer Education and Awareness Program (REAP) was designed by Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission (TABC) staff to provide education for all staffing levels of alcoholic beverage retailers. This program provides owners, managers and general employees of retail establishments an opportunity to REAP the benefits of continued education and compliance with the state’s alcoholic beverage laws. Hosted by TABC, the two-hour program addresses common issues such as those related to minors and intoxicated patrons. The course covers both on- and off-premise scenarios in one training environment and is easily customizable to individual training needs. The program is designed to create a dialogue between TABC and all levels of alcoholic beverage retail staff while in an educational environment. TABC Agents and Auditors will cover topics to refresh even the most seasoned employees while also asking for feedback and opening the class up for questions so those involved leave with a better understanding of possible problem areas and solutions.
