Other Course Options

CPL Training are known for their first-rate service in helping you gain your personal licence in England and Wales. Usually we offer two ways to complete the BIIAB Award for Personal Licence Holders Training Course:

Option 1. Face-to-Face Course and Exam – The learner completes a full day training course with an experienced tutor at one of our training centres, located in over 70 locations across the country. They then sit the multiple-choice exam on the same day while the knowledge is still fresh in their minds. The learner also receives a handbook before attending the course so they can familiarise themselves with the course content. Prior reading isn’t essential as our tutors will cover everything as part of the training session. This is usually our most popular option.

Option 2. E-Learning Course and Face-to-Face Exam – The learner is given access to the Award for Personal Licence Holders e-learning course and is also provided with a handbook. The learner then completes the courses at a time and place that suits them. They must then come and complete the exam at one of our training centres on their chosen date and location. Learners must complete the full e-learning course before completing the exam.

We also usually provide In Company Courses. If you have eight or more learners, we will happily come to you to train your team. For more information or to inquire about a personalised quote for the future please complete our request a call back form and a member of the team will get back in touch.

We look forward to once again providing a range of ways for you to complete your APLH Personal Licence Course, and we will endeavour to keep our clients and potential customers up-to-date about any changes to the courses we can offer as the situation develops.
