Bar Staff Training (Working in Licensed Premises) Course Contents
1. The Licensing Act and its aims
The Licensing Act has four aims. Organisations which sell alcohol have a responsibility to uphold these aims. Here we look at what these aims are and suggest a variety of ways to achieve them.
2. Age Verification Process
All places that sell alcohol must, by law, have an age verification process. It's a mandatory licensing condition. It's about asking for ID, knowing what ID is acceptable and being able to recognise fake ID. And it's about having the confidence to refuse to serve someone.
3. Best Practice Working
This section explains the mandatory licensing conditions. It looks at ILLEGAL activities, such as smoking on the premises and drugs on the premises. It explains right of entry. It looks at how alcohol may affect customers and suggests ways to promote responsible drinking.
