Each time employees prevent service of alcohol to a minor or intoxicated person, they are protecting themselves, their business, and the community from serious public safety risks. The Retailer Education and Awareness Program (REAP) was designed by 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 may be easily customized 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 the possible problem areas and solutions.
