SKILLS YOU WILL GAIN
About this Course
This online course is perfect for anyone who sells, wishes to sell, or authorise the sale of alcohol in England or Wales. This includes anyone working in hospitality, bars, clubs, retail, or any other licensed premises, as well as temporary events where alcohol is to be sold. It can also be used as a refresher course for someone who already has a personal licence.
It is a legal requirement in the UK that the sale of alcohol conducted on licensed premises must be authorised by a personal licence holder. To apply for a personal licence, you must hold an accredited qualification. Upon successful completion, you will receive a recognised RQF certificate from Highfield.
Irresponsible consumption of alcohol causes thousands of accidents and incidents in the UK every year. A fifth of all suicides are also connected with alcohol abuse, because of this, the sale of alcohol must be regulated. Licensed premises must have an allocated personal licence holder, known as the Designated Premises Supervisor (DPS). The DPS must authorise every sale of alcohol.
This course will help you to understand licencing law, know the importance of following alcohol retailing responsibility regulations, and learn how to enforce it. It will also put you in the best position to apply for a premises licence. You will learn how to ensure the protection of children through responsible retailing and prepare for temporary events.
Did you know: There must be at least one personal licence holder in all the premises with a premises licence where one of their activities include the sale and supply of alcohol.
After successfully completing the course you will receive an e-certificate that you can download onto your device.
