  • 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

What does the assessment involve?

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. The training is followed on the same day by one multiple choice examination.
