Award For Personal Licence Holders

From pubs to restaurants, any business with an alcohol licence needs employees who are qualified and know their responsibilities. Individuals applying for a personal licence must hold a regulated licensing qualification such as the Level 2 Award for Personal Licence Holders.

This course includes key information on the responsibilities of personal licence holders, duties of the Designated Premises Supervisor, the role of licensing authorities and police powers regarding licensed premises.

Achievement of the qualification forms an essential part of the personal licence application and will enable those selling or authorising alcohol sales to operate both legally and responsibly.

This course covers the syllabus set by the Government to enable candidates to understand the law in relation to a wide range of important topics.

Units covered in this programme include:
– The roles, responsibilities and functions of licensing authorities within the framework of the licensing objectives.
– The application process for a personal licence.
– The role and legal responsibilities of the personal licence holder and the penalties relating to failure to comply with the law.
– The premises licence.
– The content and purpose of operating schedules.
