Personal Licence Course Details

The Level 2 Award for Personal Licence Holders, also known as the APLH Licence, is the basic requirement for selling alcohol within a retail environment. The Personal Licence  Course leads to the Level 2 Award for Personal Licence Holders. This ensures that hospitality workers, bar staff and event managers have attained the necessary skills and qualifications to operate legally, whilst also maintaining a safe environment for their customers, employees and co-workers.

The APLH Personal Licence course is a statutory requirement for people involved in the sale of alcohol. It ensures people do so responsibly, as well as maintain standards to minimise alcohol abuse.

This Personal Licence course will provide you with the relevant training and accreditation required to legally sell and authorise the sale of alcohol at any licensed premises in England and Wales for those looking to pursue a career in hospitality and the bar industry.

One of the key skills that the Personal Licence course (APLH) provides is the ability to understand and implement the requirements of the Licensing Act within the workplace.

The sale of alcohol without the approved authorisation carries a maximum penalty on conviction of a fine of £20,000 and/or 6 months imprisonment.
