Why should you use the Workbook?
Because if you read and learn everything in the NCPLH Workbook, you will satisfy all the criteria specified by the Department of Culture, Media and Sport - the government department charged with regulating the sale and supply and alcohol, together with public entertainment and late night refreshment.
In short, you will pass the National Certificate for Personal Licence Holders (NCPLH) exam and, subject to a number of other criteria which are listed within the workbook, you will be granted your Personal Licence.
The NCPLH qualification covers the syllabus set by government to enable candidates to understand the law in relation to:
- the roles, responsibilities and functions of licensing authorities within the framework of the licensing objectives
- the application process for a personal licence
- the role and legal responsibilities of the personal licence holder, and the penalties relating to failure to comply with the law
- the premises licence
- the content and purpose of operating schedules
- the role and duties of the designated premises supervisor
- unauthorised and temporary licensable activities
- rights of entry to licensed premises
- police powers with regard to suspension and closure of licensed premises
- the specific prohibitions for the sale of alcohol
- the strengths of alcoholic drinks, and the effects of alcohol on the human body
- the protection of children from harm
- the responsible retail sale of alcohol
The examination for the NCPLH lasts 40 minutes and consists of 40 multiple choice questions drawn from the assessment criteria. In order to pass the examination candidates must answer at least 28 out of 40 questions correctly.
This course book takes you through the various sections and gives you the answers which you will require to pass the examination. It covers both the Licensing Act 2003 itself and your social responsibilities as a Personal Licence Holder. You will receive an e-copy of the Workbook when you book your exam.
