About Basset BASSET stands for "Beverage Alcohol Sellers and Servers Education and Training". It is a training program for people who sell and/or serve alcoholic beverages. BASSET is a trained supplemental to TIPS. TIPS stands for "Training for Intervention Procedures". The Village of Fox Lake uses the TIPS program. Currently, the On Premise, Off Premise, Concessions, andGaming programs are approved for use in BASSET/TIPS training.
The BASSET or TIPS program is provided and regulated by the State of Illinois, but the cities in Illinois determine via ordinance whether or not the training should be required.
