In addition to parents, educators and health care providers, retail stores that sell commercial tobacco products including e-cigarettes or vapes play a crucial role in keeping the highly addictive drug, nicotine, out of the hands of youth. the Nevada Tobacco Control Program and our Partner Coalitions and Health Districts have made working with commercial tobacco retailers a priority.
A free training and certification program has been developed and updated with the newest guidelines provided by the Federal Food and Drug Administration (FDA) which provides essential education through a set of Learning Modules and concludes with a certification quiz.
Every retail clerk, supervisor, manager and business owner who completes the training and quiz becomes a State of Nevada Certified Responsible Tobacco Retailer.
