Personal Licence Holders Training (APLH)

The Advanced Personal License Holders (APLH) training course covers all topics required to achieve the necessary qualification to apply for a personal licence.

The course is a legal requirement for anyone wishing to sell or authorise the sale of alcohol by retail to be a personal licence holder.

Topics covered include:

  • The Licensing Act 2003
  • Premises Licences and Club Premises Certificates
  • Licensing Objectives
  • Powers of Enforcement and Offences
  • Temporary Events Notices
  • Responsibility in Alcohol Retailing

The cost of the HABC Level 2 Award for Personal Licence Holders (APLH) full day training course is £120 + VAT, including course materials, a sandwich lunch, refreshments and exam. A free resit of the exam is available if required.

Courses can be delivered at our main training centre in Newcastle or at one of our North East satellite centres in Durham, Chester-le-Street, Sunderland and Middlesbrough. Subject to numbers, we can also deliver training at your premises.

For an additional £125 plus VAT we can also apply for your personal licence. (Please note, this fee does not include the application fee (£37) or a criminal record check). If you notify us in advance of the training, we can complete the forms when you attend your training course.
