Level 2 Award for Personal Licence Holders

Is this qualification for me?

The Level 2 Award for Personal Licence Holders is for individuals that are currently or wish to work in any environment that involves the sale of alcohol.

Any business licensed to sell alcohol, including small pubs, retailers, large night clubs, cafes, 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 requires the Level 2 Award for Personal Licence Holders qualification.

A personal licence is also required to become a designated premises supervisor (DPS). Licensed premises can have several personal licence holders.
