Alcohol licence training is typically a one day instructor led training course for both licensing qualifications. In England and Wales the licensing qualifcation is known as the APLH (Award for personal licence holders, which is a level 2 licensing qualification. In Scotland the licensing qualification is called the SCPLH (Scottish certificate for personal licence holders. Both qualifications will allow the holder to do the following;
- Be named on the premises licence as the designated premises supervisor/premises manager (Licensee)
- Sell alcohol by retail under a premises licence
- Authorise the sale of alcohol from licensed premises (allow members of staff to sell alcohol)
