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 at the relevant time.

Failure to ensure this training is done could be fatal to your business. You cannot operate licensed premises unless the premises manager has a valid personal licence. You cannot operate premises after 1a.m. unless a personal licence holder is present in the premises.

SCPLH Refresher courses are available to sit NOW. Anyone whose personal licence was issued on or before 1 September 2009 must sit and pass the Refresher course by 31 August 2014 and submit evidence of this to the relevant licensing board by 1 December 2014. All retraining for these dates will need to be carried out and notification sent to licensing boards on or before 1 December 2014. Any personal licence holders whose licence was issued after 1 September 2009 must also comply with this but their deadlines will be personal to them - if you are unsure of when your refresher training is due go to www.scplh.info where there is a calculator that will help you to identify when it is due.

Licensing Boards will send out notification to all personal licence holders 3 months before the 5th anniversary of the issue of your personal licence but not receiving this reminder does not excuse licence holders from meeting these requirements. The success of this notification depends on whether they have your correct name and address. If you have moved house or changed your name you must advise the licensing board that issued your licence. Have you done this?

BIIAB is aware that there is considerable confusion surrounding SCPLH Refresher training and we encourage all members and non-members to contact us for help and assistance.
