Award for Personal License Holders (APLH)

Who should attend?
The law requires alcohol sales on licensed premises to be made or authorised by a personal licence holder. Individuals applying for a personal licence must hold an accredited licensing qualification such as the Award for Personal License Holders (APLH).

The qualification is accredited by both Ofqual and the Home Office and has been designed to meet the statutory requirements of the Licensing Act 2003. The aim of the Award for Personal License Holders (APLH) course is to provide you with the essential knowledge of the legal framework surrounding the sale of alcohol in England and Wales. This includes key information on the responsibilities of personal licence holders, duties of the designated premises supervisor, the role of licensing authorities and police powers regarding licensed premises.

Achievement of the qualification forms an essential part of the personal licence application and will enable those selling or authorising alcohol sales to operate both legally and responsibly.
