Personal licence holder training
Anyone who authorises the sale of alcohol on a licensed premise in England and Wales must hold a personal licence by law. A personal licence enables you and other staff members to make sales of alcohol.
To be issued with a personal licence you must meet the following:
- You're aged 18 or over.
- You don't have any current relevant criminal convictions.
- You need to have gained a recognised Personal Licence holder’s qualification.
You can't be issued with a personal licence unless you have a Level 2 Award for Personal Licence Holders (APLH). Luckily for you we now provide APLH training!
What is the APLH?
The APLH is the Level 2 Award for Personal Licence Holders.
Who needs the APLH?
Applicants for a personal licence must submit to the appropriate Local Authority Licensing Authority (England and Wales) a number of things to support their application, including proof that they hold a government approved licensing qualification such as the APLH.
