UK Alcohol Personal Licence Holder (APLH) e-Learning

UK Alcohol Personal Licence Holder (APLH) e-Learning

The alcohol licensing laws of the United Kingdom regulate the sale and consumption of alcohol. Any organisation, business or individual who wishes to sell alcohol must have a licence. This is obtained from a Licensing Authority.

This course starts with an overview of UK alcohol licensing laws and the importance of promoting the four key licensing objectives.

The three main types of licence are covered, including applications, conditions, representations, and reviews.

You’ll learn about the legal duties of personal licence holders, and how to deal with Licensing Authorities, along with information relating to objections, fees and hearings.

The course will also discuss issues surrounding Temporary Event Notices, and mandatory conditions, which are compulsory for all licensed premises.

It’ll also look in detail at the major issue of age verification – and you’ll learn about the licensing laws and best practices as they apply to children and under 18s.

Finally, it outlines the responsibilities involved in alcohol retailing including drinking guidelines and how to avoid and reduce conflict.
