Scottish Certificate for Personal Licence Holders (SCPLH)
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. You will be asked for a number of things to support your application; these include proof that you hold a SCPLH licensing qualification.
The SCPLH covers the syllabus set by the Scottish Government to enable candidates to understand the law in relation to:
- the roles, responsibilities and functions of Licensing Boards and Licensing Standards Officers
- the application process for a personal licence
- the application process for premises and occasional licences, mandatory & discretionary conditions
- protection of children from harm
- the content and purpose of an operating schedule and risk assessment
- drunkenness and disorderly behaviour
- licensed hours
- control of order
- the responsible retail sale of alcohol
- roles and responsibilities of the personal licence holder and the penalties relating to failure to comply with the law
- unauthorised licensable activities
- rights of entry to licensed premises
- the strengths of alcoholic drinks and the effects of alcohol on the human body.
The SCPLH has been developed in a way that means it meets the training specification of the Scottish Government and can be finished in one day. Longer tuition and self-study options are also available. The training is usually followed on the same day by a short multiple-choice exam. Training is supported by a SCPLH Handbook which is written in an easy-to-follow format covering all the information needed for the exam.
