This training was created by the Florida Petroleum Marketers and Convenience Store Association to meet the requirements of Chapter 812, Florida Statutes, know as the Convenience Security Act, which was passed in 1992. This course will help you better understand the requirements of the Act, which establishes minimum security standards for the safe operations of convenience stores. Training in robbery deterrence and safety for each retail employee is mandatory. Violations of this law could result in civil penalties ad high as $5000.00.
In addition to the robbery deterrence training, this curriculum also includes training for the responsible vending of alcohol and tobacco products, which will allow your business to qualify as a Responsible Vendor pursuant to Sec. 561.705 FS. With this training qualification your business will be exempt from license suspension or revocation in the event an employee violates the law regarding the sale of alcohol or tobacco products to under age patrons.
