Bolt is developing 4 eLearning modules focussed on 'Alcohol Licensing & Sales'. Our first module, focusses on MUP (Minimum Unit Pricing) and is a simple 10-minute module designed to give retailers, managers and staff the essential knowledge and understanding on MUP.

Key Features and Benefits

The Minimum Unit Pricing (MUP) measure introduced by the Scottish Government and embedded in the Alcohol (Minimum Pricing) (Scotland) Act 2012 comes into force on 1 May 2018. MUP sets the minimum price one can pay for a unit of alcohol at a minimum of 50p per unit. Retailers who fail to comply with MUP will be unable to return stock to the wholesaler or sell stock at non MUP compliant prices and may face criminal charges if they do so. This engaging eLearning module is designed to give retailers and their staff a comprehensive understanding of how the MUP legislation affects them and their store(s). It provides easily digestible information about changes which need to be made to remain compliant and tips to ensure their BWS category still flourishes.

It is a fully online interactive course and assessment , accessible on any device, 24/7, with no time limits.  A certificate can be downloaded upon successful completion of the eLearning module.
