Q: My personal licence is due to expire on August 31 and I know I need to get a renewal application submitted well ahead of the May 31 deadline. When I was looking for training, I came across a college website suggesting that a personal licence was needed by anyone serving alcohol or “working behind a bar”. All staff in my pub have been trained on the two-hour course but there are only two personal licence holders. Are we complying with the law?
Q: I took my eye off the ball and didn’t complete refresher training in time resulting in my personal licence being revoked. To maintain my employment as a duty manager I need to get this sorted quickly. Is there still a five-year ban in making a new application? Can I use the training qualification I obtained in 2011?
