Health departments are promoting an online training program for tobacco retailers, designed to reduce illegal sales of tobacco to minors.
Marta Koelling is Community Health Specialist for the Oneida County Health Department. She says the online program called smokecheck.org is free and educational.
“It offers information and study guides on Wisconsin’s tobacco laws, checking ids, and communicating with customers.”
Participants can choose to take an exam at the end of the training and receive a state-approved certificate.
