Day two of this course will provide the training required by any member of staff authorising the sale of alcohol legally in a licensed premise as they are required to hold a personal licence. In day two we cover Licensing Law, Licensing Related Legislation, Alcohol and its Influences as well as Premises Environment as detailed n the Licensing (Scotland) Act 2005. On successful completion of this part of the course candidates will gain a Scottish Personal Licence Certificate.
