Course Overview

Award for Personal Licence Holders (APLH) Level 2 BIIAB Qualification

If you are looking to gain a personal licence in England and Wales then this is the course for you. This course should be taken by anyone who works in a role which requires them to authorise the sale of alcohol to the public.

CPL Training offers two ways to complete the 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 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 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 pace 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.

Who should take this course?

  • Designated premises supervisor (DPS)
  • Managers
  • Assistant Managers
