How do I become a Designated Premises Supervisor?
Every licensed premises needs a designated premises supervisor or DPS. First you will need to gain a personal licence. This will require you to attend a training course for the qualification A.P.L.H. After training you will sit a multiple choice questionnaire to obtain your certificate. Once you have successfully passed you will also require a C.R.B. certificate and an application form from your Local Licensing Authority. When you have both your accreditation and CRB certificates you will need to submit your application to the Local Authority along with an application fee of £37. Subject to no objections from the local Police, you will recieve your licence in due course. Once you have your licence you can then submit your application, along with a Designated Premises Supervisor consent form, to be nominated as the Designated Premises Supervisor on the existing or new premises licence.
