The Scottish Government requires all personal licence holders to undertake regular refresher training every 5 years to keep up their skills and to enable them to retain their personal licences. All personal licence holders must attend a 1/2 day update course, sit and pass an exam.
This is a 4 hour course with pre-course workbook. It is essential that candidates read this in advance of attending the course as part of preparation for the course.
Candidates must have a valid Personal Licence.
Course content is specified by the Scottish Government and covers an introduction to licensing, responsible operation of licensed premises and the effect of irresponsible operation on society and health.
40 question multiple choice assessment completes at the end of the training session.
Various dates available, contact your local college centre or call 01397 874874 for your next available course.

If you are 18 and over and are eligible for a bursary, these costs will be met through your bursary. If you are not eligible for a bursary, you will need to fund these items yourself.
If you are under 18, you are entitled to have essential equipment paid for whether you are entitled to EMA or not. However you must apply for EMA even if you know that you’re not entitled to EMA.
