This generally includes new staff seeking promotion through to staff at managerial levels.
To get your personal licence, the first step is to attend and pass the 1-day personal licence course. Once you pass and receive your certificate, you can apply via your local licensing authority (usually your local council).

Certificates are dispatched 4 - 6 weeks after successful course completion via Royal Mail. We aim to post your certificate within 2 days after receiving it from your training provider. We will send you an email once we have dispatched your certificate. If you opted for Secured Delivery, your certificate will be posted with a service requiring your signature.

If you do not complete your refresher training within the correct time period, and submit your refresher training certificate to your licensing board, then you will no longer be considered a Personal Licence Holder and you will no longer be able to authorise the sale or service of alcohol.
