Level 2 Award for Personal Licence Holders

Course Overview

Any business licensed to sell alcohol, including small pubs, retailers, large night clubs, cafés, restaurants, hotels, and sports facilities, is required by law to have at least one personal licence holder. To become a personal licence holder, an individual should gain a regulated qualification, such as the Level 2 Award for Personal Licence Holders. A personal licence allows the holder to sell or authorise the sale of alcohol. A personal licence is also needed to apply to become a designated premise supervisor (DPS).
