APLH-BIIAB Level 2 Award for Personal Licence Holders (QCF)

Course Description

This interactive, one-day training delivers the recognised licensing qualification (APLH) for delegates working in, or preparing to work in, any industry that involves the retail sale of alcohol. This training has to be completed before applying for a Personal Licence.

Through clear, easy to follow and interactive delivery each delegate will leave with a thorough understanding of the requirements and responsibilities of a personal licence holder and how to proactively implement this in the workplace.

What you will learn:

  • The Licensing Act 2003 and Licensing Policy

  • Personal Licence and duties of a personal licence holder

  • Premises licences incorporating operating Schedules

  • Designated Premises Supervisor

  • Temporary Events Notices

  • Exemptions and Prohibitions to the sale and supply of alcohol

  • Unauthorised licensable activities

  • Rights of Entry and Powers to close premises

  • Protection of Children

  • Definition of Alcohol under LA2003 and how it affects body and behaviour

  • Smoking, Drugs and responsible retailing

Who’s this suitable for:

Anyone who works in or is involved in the sale of alcohol at an operational level.

Owners or senior management who will need to become the Designated Premises Supervisor (DPS) for the property to allow the sale of alcohol.

Duty managers in large bars, restaurants, hotels, supermarkets or stadia.


There is a multiple choice examination, with 40 questions, 28 of which must be answered correctly to pass.*

Delegates who attend and pass will receive a certificate through the British Institute of Innkeeping Awarding Body (BIIAB).


A BIIA handbook is available for each delegate*, which includes all of the key information covered in the course and also has a series of activities for delegates to attempt pre-course.

This is sent out in advance of the course (minimum 4 working days). If bookings are taken after this the handbook will be available on the day of the training.

*Additional cost of £7 per handbook

How to apply for the personal licence

After passing the exam delegates need to make an application to their local council and once issued the licence will last indefinitely, with no need to renew.

Alternatively, we can provide a fast track service giving you the necessary support to complete the Personal Licence application form and take the hassle off you.
