Training CoursesBIIAB Level 1 Award in Responsible Alcohol Retailing (ARAR)

BIIAB has developed a new qualification in response to demand from the industry and its regulators to provide an assessed training programme for full and part-time staff working in all licensed premises. A replacement for the Barpersons National Certificate, the qualification is suitable for all areas of the licensed retail.

The curriculum includes

  • The nature of alcohol, the common measurements of alcohol content and the effect that it has on the human body
  • The main issues in the 2003 Licensing Act as they relate to alcohol retailers and servers
  • The law and consequences of breach, in relation to the protection of children, the sale, consumption, and other activities, and recommended forms of proof of age within licensed premises
  • The importance of contributing as a socially responsible team member with regard to the promotion and service of alcohol, the consequences of breach of the law, and strategies which will help the responsible drink retailer
  • How best to recognise and handle drunkenness of customers and the importance of doing so in relation to the law and the social responsibilities relating to the sale of alcohol
  • The potential causes of conflict and crime, appropriate strategies that can be adopted to prevent or eliminate these and the importance of personal safety.

This half day course combines pre-course self-study and a face-to-face classroom session, plus a 30-minute examination. Refreshments are included.
