Poppleston Allen are one of the few training organisations to have been approved to offer the new BII course for Licensing Practitioners.
As a firm of solicitors with nationwide coverage we are uniquely placed to deliver this course drawing on our experience of how the Licensing Act is being implemented in practice up and down the country.
The course is broad in content and covers topics such premises and personal licences, Club Premises Certificates and Temporary Event Notices through to hearings, Reviews, Appeals, closures of premises and rights of entry. The course is relevant to anyone involved in the licensing process particularly Councillors, Licensing Authority Officers, responsible authorities and enforcement officers.
Courses are run in both Nottingham and London on a regular basis and these events attract a wide cross section of those involved in the licensing process . We are also very happy to travel to you and deliver the course to a closed audience invited by you. This would be of particular interest to those who wish to train their entire Licensing Authority (officers and members) or a gathering of people from neighbouring councils and responsible authorities. We have conducted the course on this basis numerous times including several licensing committees, licensing departments and police forces up and down the country. This approach often proves an extremely cost effective solution to training and a productive use of your budget.
Whilst our client base is predominantly from the licensed trade we provide specialist advice to police forces, licensing authorities and increasingly interested parties. As a result of this we aim for a balanced, non-biased presentation of the issues that the course specifically and the Licensing Act generally raise. We have now had the pleasure of meeting many delegates on this course since its inception and consequently have developed an understanding of the unique concerns that each of the different stakeholders in licensing have.
The course fee of £200 + vat includes the BII exam fee, handbook, tuition and certificate costs.
In conjunction with the BII, we have created an exam compiled from past paper questions.
