Course Content

BIIAB Scottish Certificate for Personal License Holders (SCPLH) - Perth

This course will be held in the Bothy in Perth.

The Licensing (Scotland) Act 2005 states that anyone who authorises the sale of alcohol to the public must hold a personal licence.

If you wish to obtain a personal licence you need to apply to your local licensing board who are obligated to ask for a number of things in support of your application; this includes proof that you hold a licensing qualification such as the BIIAB Scottish Certificate for Personal License Holders.

The course has been developed in a way that means it meets the training specification of the Scottish Government and can be finished in one day. The training is followed on the same day by a short multiple-choice exam.

This course is also available as an online course which you can complete in your own time and at your pace. More information can be found here

We also run this course in Glasgow, Edinburgh, and St Andrews.

If you have 10 or more staff that require the Personal License Certificate then we can hold a private course either at Tennent’s Training Academy or at your venue on a date of your choice, just call us on 0141 553-0010 for more information
