In order to sell alcohol in England and Wales, a Personal Licence is required. Personal Licenses must be renewed every 10 years. While businesses that sell alcohol only need one Personal Licence Holder to oversee the activity, they are required by law to provide proper training surrounding the sale and supply of alcohol to every single member of staff.
In facts, all staff must undergo basic training in licencing law, particularly regarding the sale of alcohol to young people and people who are, or appear to be, drunk. This is an essential requirement for all employees working in a licenced premises (including c-stores, supermarkets, wholesalers, pubs, bars). If your staff is not compliant with the required training, your premises might have the licence suspended or revoked.
Bolt has created a comprehensive online training module called Licensing. It was designed to meet legislative requirements and provide employees with the mandatory training needed to work in premises where alcohol is sold – with our online module, you won’t need to set up a face-to-face training session for every new employee and you will make sure your staff is fully compliant with alcohol licensing regulations.
Businesses are also required to keep record of the staff who completed this training and all training records are subject to inspection by Licensing Standards Officers upon request. Our LMS automatically stores data about your employees and check that all of your staff is compliant, giving you peace of mind.
