Licensing Awareness for Operational Staff is not a full licence course but is designed for operational staff to develop their understanding of the importance of handling alcohol to the correct legal and company standards in the workplace. The importance of displaying a summary licence, the measures for the range of alcoholic drinks from spirits, beers, wines and fortified wines are discussed along with offering water to customers, age checks and recording refusals. The Licensing Awareness for Operational Staff module also overviews the initial handling of drunk customers, giving accurate descriptions under the Consumer Protection Regulations and the fines that are applicable under licensing regulations
The Licensing Awareness for Operational Staff module is designed for all operational staff in hotels, restaurants and bars to ensure they are aware of all Licensing regulations and how they effect the business. Individuals may like to develop their own knowledge and confidence or use the module certificates at interviews. The programme will contribute to the guided learning hours for those staff completing a hospitality apprenticeship.
