National Certificate for Personal Licence Holders (NCPLH)
Licensing law in England and Wales states that anyone who authorises the sale of alcohol to the public must hold a personal licence. Those who wish to obtain a personal licence need to apply to their local licensing authority. Applicants will be asked for a number of things to support their application; these will include proof that they hold a NCPLH licensing qualification.
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.
Training for the NCPLH can be finished in one day and is usually followed on the same day by one short multiple-choice exam with 40 questions. All questions test the knowledge of the person taking the exam. The exam covers all aspects of the law and social responsibilities in relation to the sale of alcohol to the public. Training is supported by the NCPLH handbook which is written in an easy-to-follow and contains all the information needed to pass the exam.
