Award in Responsible Alcohol Retailing Course

The BIIAB Level 1 Award in Responsible Alcohol Retailing (ARAR) is a qualification designed for front-line staff working on licensed premises (pubs, clubs, hotels, events industry, off-licenses, licensed shops etc.), to help them sell alcohol responsibility and promote the licensing objectives.


The ARAR covers the knowledge required by staff who are authorised by the Personal Licence Holder or Designated Premises Supervisor to sell alcohol.


The BIIAB Level 1 Award in Responsible Alcohol Retailing is a nationally recognised qualification and the industry standard. It affords more protection to employers and their premises licence, as it strengthens the defence of due diligence where prosecutions may affect continued operations. The qualification is endorsed by the government and recognised by licensing authorities across England & Wales.
