The Licensing (Scotland) Act 2005 states that anyone who authorises the sale of alcohol to the public must have a personal licence. An applicant for a personal licence must provide evidence to the local Licensing Board that they hold a licensing qualification that meets the specification of the Scottish Government.


This qualification is aimed at anyone in Scotland who needs to apply for a personal licence to sell alcohol in Scotland. The qualification covers the syllabus set by the Scottish government and will ensure learners understand the law, regulation and responsibilities attached to the retail sale of alcohol.
On completion of this course, candidates will hold a licensing qualification with which they can apply for the Personal Licence.
