CPL Training is an international training company and the largest provider of personal licence training (APLH courses) in the UK.

Latest figures by Ofqual show that CPL are now training a quarter of all those who take the personal licence (APLH course, formerly NCPLH course) qualification across England and Wales. More

Paul Chase, CPL's Director & Head of UK Compliance, reflects: "This is our highest ever market share for personal licence training. Gaining a 25% share represents a growth in like-for-like sales of 31% as compared with the same quarter in 2010."

The popular APLH training course, formerly NCPLH course, is available in over 70 locations nationwide as both an open and in-company course. Our Online division is also currently developing APLH training course as part of their e-learning portfolio, giving future personal license holders flexible training options.

Over 35,000 people a year undergo training with CPL; a large percentage of which undertake APLH training courses. Our customers range from individuals who want to progress their careers and improve their knowledge and skills, to corporate customers both large and small.

For all of our learners CPL is the training provider of choice.

We work closely with leading awarding bodies and have developed a range of licensed retail, hospitality and security sector qualifications; everything from APLH courses, formerly NCPLH training courses, and close protection to first aid and food safety. Our recent partnerships have allowed us to diversify into new sectors by developing a range of compliance and soft skills courses available both online and face-to-face.

Alcohol-Licence - Businesses, organisations and individuals who want to sell or supply alcohol in England, Wales and Scotland must have a licence or other authorisation from a licensing authority - usually a local council. The law and policy governing this area is overseen by the Home Office.

Application-for-Personal-Licence - To apply for a licence, you will need to complete an application form and send it to your local council, along with the fee. This process also involves applying to Disclosure Scotland for a CRB check (if you live in Scotland). CPL Training can take the hassle of this away and do your personal licence application for you.

Bar-Licence - Only ‘qualifying’ clubs may hold club premises certificates. In order to be a qualifying club, a club must have at least 25 members and meet certain conditions. The grant of a club premises certificate means that a qualifying club is entitled to certain benefits. Please see the amended guidance issued under section 182 of the Licensing Act 2003 for more details.

Qualifying clubs should not be confused with proprietary clubs, which are clubs run commercially by individuals, partnerships or businesses for profit. These require a premises licence and are not qualifying clubs.

Licence-to-Sell-Alcohol - As stated in ‘Alcohol-Licence’, a licence is needed to sell alcohol in:

  • pubs and bars
  • cinemas
  • theatres
  • nightclubs
  • late-opening cafes
  • takeaways
  • village and community halls
  • supermarkets

Personal-Alcohol-Licence - are designed to ensure that anybody running or managing a business that sells or supplies alcohol will do so in a professional fashion.

Once you receive your personal licence, you can act as the designated premises supervisor for any business that sells or supplies alcohol.

Pub-Licence - A premises licence authorises the use of any premises (which is defined in the Licensing 2003 Act as a vehicle, vessel or moveable structure or any place or a part of any premises) for licensable activities as defined in section 1 of the 2003 Act.

At CPL Training we passionately believe that knowledge and skills empower people and businesses to grow, develop and achieve.Collapse
