BIIAB Level 1 - Award in Responsible Alcohol Retailing

Demonstrates commitment to responsible alcohol retailing

Enables those who successfully pass to act within the law and to support the designated premises supervisor to retail alcohol responsibly on their licensed premises

BIIAB has developed the BIIAB Level 1 ARAR in response to industry-wide training requirements to demonstrate commitment to responsible alcohol retailing.

The BIIAB Level 1 ARAR provides additional protection to licensed premises operators and candidates alike as it contains 3 mandatory questions that ensure every candidate fully understands the legislation concerning underage sales, serving persons who are drunk and the licensing objectives.

The qualification covers the following areas:

  • The nature of alcohol 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.
  • Licensing law in relation to the protection of children from harm.
  • The social responsibilities relating to the retail sale of alcohol.
  • How to recognise drunkenness, and your duty not to serve drunk customers.
  • Appropriate strategies that can be adopted to prevent or eliminate alcohol-related crime and conflict and the importance of personal safety.

Consistent changes in legislation make it increasingly difficult for businesses to keep track of new training requirements. As a college within the local business community, it is up to us to ensure we offer the most relevant training to meet these changes and courses such as the ARAR fit the bill.quote marks
