Level 1 Award in Responsible Alcohol Retailing -FREE training places

Here’s a quick update on the FREE training courses.  I now have 2 available places.  The details are below:


I have received some funding from SAB Miller in conjunction with the BIIAB to deliver FREE training for bar staff in the Greater Manchester area. SAB Miller brands include Peroni, Bulmers, Coors Light, Grolsch and Tyskie to name a few.

The Level 1 Award in Responsible Alcohol Retailing, is aimed at promoting responsible alcohol retailing with staff who work in shops, bars, restaurants and clubs etc.  A summary of the training is as follows:

Summary – This qualification enables candidates to understand the main points of licensing law. Recognize the responsibilities associated with the retail sale of alcohol and understand their duties concerning under-age sales and serving persons who are drunk. Support the designated premises supervisor to retail alcohol responsibly on their licensed premises.   On completion of the training, delegates sit a short multiple choice exam and once passed, they receive a Nationally recognized certificate from the BIIAB.

I have been running the same programme in Greater Manchester for the last few years and the feedback is always very positive.

The rules for this year’s training are as follows:

  1. Learners must be recruited from the following areas; tenanted/leased pubs, bars and other types of licensed outlets including franchised off-licensed operators.  This programme is not available to staff from managed companies.
  2. Learners must be 18 years or older and must have been employed within the licensed retail sector for a minimum of 6 months (and not be Personal Licence Holders).
  3. Learners must work in businesses located in Greater Manchester.

Also as part of the programme outstanding learners will be identified during training and may be invited to a high profile award ceremony later in the year.

The last course will run on Thursday 29th January 2014, 10.00am-2.30pm at The Conservative Club, High Street, Uppermill, Oldham.

If you would like to nominate any of your staff for this FREE training, please can you email me on info@cljconsultants.co.uk or phone 07871 559441 with your team members details.  Places will be allocated on first come first served basis.  Be quick !

I look forward to hearing from you.
