One of the key competencies which the Personal Licence Course (APLH) provides to people who complete the course is the ability to understand and implement the requirements of the Licensing Act within the workplace. The course is also designed to increase the students' knowledge about the effects of alcohol and how alcohol affects different people in various ways. This training provides bar staff with the opportunity to ensure that patrons are able to enjoy themselves without the risks that excessive alcohol consumption can bring about. The inclusion of the training requirements within the Licensing Act identify that the government are serious about reducing the health consequences of alcohol consumption and provide an avenue for bar staff to gain industry recognised training that will increase the overall professionalism within the industry.
