Alcohol Sale and Licensing Law Awareness - Target Audience

Alcohol is something that many people enjoy when consumed safely and in moderation. However, irresponsible drinking can seriously impact people's health and lead to anti-social behaviour.

Licensing laws, such as the Licensing Act 2003 in England and Wales, are designed to promote responsible drinking and prevent any crime, disorder and nuisance that may arise as a result of alcohol consumption. They apply to all businesses that partake in licensable activities, such as the sale of alcohol.

This course covers the requirements of the Licensing Act 2003 and provides information on how to manage drunk and disorderly behaviour. It is designed for anyone who works in a licensed premises in England and Wales, such as a bar, restaurant, pub or supermarket.

Alcohol Sale and Licensing Law Awareness - Course Overview


The Licensing Act 2003 is a large piece of legislation that everyone who works in licensed premises must understand and adhere to in order to protect people from experiencing harm as a result of alcohol consumption. Failure to do so can impact the safety of a venue and result in fines and prosecutions.

In this course, we will cover:

  • What alcohol is, its effects, and how its consumption is measured.
  • What licensing law is, and its requirements.
  • What licensing conditions are, and why they are used.
  • The law surrounding alcohol and children.
  • How to manage behaviour in licensed premises.


It takes approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes to complete the course. This can be spread out over multiple sessions or completed in a single session, and there is no time limit for completion.


All candidates must complete a multiple choice assessment after working through the training material. The candidate will be asked 12 multiple choice questions and need to answer a minimum of 9 correctly to pass. Candidates will be given instant feedback after completing the assessment stating whether they have passed or failed. The assessment can be retaken as many times as is required to pass at no additional cost.
