Course Description
The alcohol licensing laws of the United Kingdom regulate the sale and consumption of alcohol. It is important for anyone working in licensed premises to have a basic understanding of these laws and how they apply to them. This licensed premises staff training course is designed for those who serve and sell alcohol and instructs on how to operate within the law while serving alcohol to the public. The outlet is not necessarily a pub or restaurant but could be a private clubs, festivals or other occasional events.

This course starts with an overview of UK alcohol licensing act, 2003, and the importance of the four key licensing objectives. These are:

  • To prevent crime and disorder
  • To promote public safety
  • To prevent public nuisance
  • To protect children from harm

The course will also discuss mandatory conditions, which are compulsory for all licensed premises.

Finally, it outlines the responsibilities involved in alcohol retailing including drinking guidelines and how to avoid and reduce conflict.
