The APLH qualification, formerly NCPLH qualification, is needed to apply for a Personal Licence to sell alcohol and advance your career prospects within the licensed retail sector in England and Wales. The law currently states that anyone wishing to sell or authorise the sale of alcohol must hold a “Personal Licence” issued by their local authority. Once you have gained the APLH qualification you need to apply for your Personal Licence, which we can give you advice and guidance on.
Courses are available nationwide throughout the year.
The APLH training course will provide each learner with a clear understanding of the framework of law and regulation that underpins the responsibilities of the personal licence holder. This will include:
- Licensing authorities
- Personal and Premises licenses
- Operating schedules
- Permitted temporary activities
- Unauthorised licensable activities
- Police powers and rights of entry
- Legal and social responsibilities of the personal licence holder
- Illegal drugs, the effects of alcohol and disorderly conduct
- Protection of children
Who should take this qualification?
The APLH course is aimed at managers, assistant managers and supervisors or staff seeking promotion to one of these positions. Anyone working in a job role that requires them to authorise retail sales of alcohol in England and Wales must complete the APLH course in order to apply for their personal licence.
