Planning to work as a duty manager in charge of liquor sales? Licensing laws have recently changed – complete this essential short course to make sure you comply! This is a mandatory course for anyone who wants to work as a duty manager in charge of a liquor store, supermarket, café, restaurant, nightclub, bar, community or sports club.
With a range of start dates throughout the year, this popular seminar develops a working knowledge of the Sale and Supply of Alcohol Act 2012. It acts as a vital pathway to the Licence Controller Qualification and the General Manager’s Certificate.
This is an intense, three week course that comprehensively covers government legislations on the sale and supply of liquor. You'll need a good level of comprehension to succeed.
The Sale and Supply of Alcohol Act 2012 was fully implemented in December 2013, replacing the Sale of Liquor Act 1989. The effects of these changes are fully explained during this seminar.
