Laws governing the sale of alcohol are known as licensing laws. This is because you need to have license to sell alcohol legally anywhere in the UK. At the moment in Scotland, these are granted by Licensing Boards in each local authority area. Local Boards set conditions, such as opening times and what kinds of entertainment can take place on the premises. They have the power to remove licenses if any rules are broken.

Accredited SQA - Scottish Certificate for Personal License Holders

The Licensing (Scotland) Act 2005 states that anyone who authorises the sale of alcohol to the public must hold a personal license. If you wish to obtain a personal license you need to apply to your local Licensing Board. You will be asked for a number of things to support your application; these include proof that you hold a licensing qualification such as the SQA SCPLH.

Who Should Take This Qualification?

Anyone who wishes to work in a licensed premises or any venue or site where alcohol is sold, for drinking on or off the premises; in a position where they will authorise the sale of alcohol to the public

Overall Assessment Method:

It is a multiple-choice exam with 40 Questions. All Questions test the knowledge of the person taking the exam. It covers all aspects of the law and social responsibilities in relation to the sale of alcohol to the public
