If you work within retail and have an establishment that serves alcohol to the public, you should know by now that it is done according to the Licensing Law Act.

The Licensing Law Awareness course covers key topics which include an introduction to the Licensing Law Act in 2003, alcohol and its effects, personal responsibility when serving the public, underage drinking, preventing trouble and dealing with incidents.
