Tobacco and Vapor Product Sales Training Class Registration

This FREE 3 hour class is for retailers who sell tobacco & vapor products. 

The Erie County Department of Health (ECDOH) recommends that all retail staff take this in-person course, especially those that work at the point of sale.  Each individual certification is valid for 3 years. During that time, a violation of a sale to an underage person may result in a one point assessment, rather than two points, on the retailer's license.
