What people are saying...

Due to my busy schedule, I don’t have the time to personally train all of my employees the way I would like. An online program like SMART provides them with excellent education on alcohol-related issues, but allows me the time to run the rest of my business”

Dana Jenkins, Owner, Fas Gas Convenience Stores - Sikeston, MO

“With an online service such as SMART we will all be on the same page for continuing education on alcohol and the problems that come along with serving alcohol”.

Richard King, The Blue Note - Columbia, MO

“SMART is a great program, and it really prepares servers to handle difficult alcohol-related situations that often occur on the job.”
