Personal Licence Course: Level 2 Award for Personal Licence Holders (RQF)
Anyone who authorises the sale of alcohol to the public (as per the legal requirement in England and Wales) is required to have a suitable qualification. Beside that, this ensures that bar staffs, hospitality workers and those working in an off-licence have attained the necessary skills and qualifications to operate legally, further maintaining a safe environment for their employees, co-workers and in particular customers.
The Level 2 Award for Personal Licence Holders (RQF)course, which is known as APLH, is a legal requirement that all sales of alcohol taking place on licensed premises in England and Wales must be authorised by a personal licence holder. Most importantly the sale of alcohol without the approved authorisation carries a maximum penalty on conviction of a fine of £20,000 and/or 6 months imprisonment.
It is a one-day training course which has been designed to meet the legal requirements to qualify to become a Personal Licence Holders and includes essential information on the responsibilities of licence holders and duties of the designated premises supervisor (DPS).
