You can still gain your personal licence with ABV.

In light of the on-going situation with coronavirus (COVID-19), we have decided to postpone our face-to-face courses. However, you can still complete your training and gain your qualification with a fully online experience. Choose your course from the selection below, and we will do the rest.

Course Overview


The BIIAB Level 1 Award in Responsible Alcohol Retailing has been developed to meet industry-wide training requirements to demonstrate commitment to responsible alcohol retailing. This qualification provides essential knowledge and understanding of the responsibilities of alcohol retailers authorised by a personal licence holder to sell alcohol. It will enable those who complete the qualification to act within the law to support the designated premises supervisor to retail alcohol responsibly on their licensed premises.

Who is the course for?

The BIIAB Award in Responsible Alcohol Retailing is designed for anyone who works on licensed retail premises who is, or likely to be, involved in the sale of alcohol including bar staff, supermarket cashiers, waiters/waitresses, and licensed shop cashiers in any licensed premises where alcohol is sold. The ARAR is a great stepping stone for someone looking to complete a personal license course.

Course Content

  • 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
