As part of our flexible training and support for hospitality and leisure professionals, Inn-Dispensable offers a range of additional services and online courses.

All staff involved in retailing alcohol must know the key licensing laws and how to apply these laws. Any server has the potential to be personally fined if they do not follow these laws. It is the responsibility of the Designated Premises Supervisor to ensure all staff have been appropriately trained and receive refresher training at regular intervals. Providing this e-learning course for all staff is an ideal way for a DPS to demonstrate due diligence to the Responsible Authorities.

To obtain a Personal Licence an accredited qualification is required. Inn-Dispensable highly recommend that a learner wishing to obtain a Personal Licence attends one of our tutor-led courses where there are opportunities to clarify information and understand the relevance of the laws to different types of business. This can also be studied online but still requires attending and passing an invigilated exam at one of our registered training centres.
