The Sale and Supply of Alcohol Act 2012 requires all licensed premises to have a certified Manager on duty at all times alcohol is available to be sold or supplied to the public.
Before applying for a Manager's Certificate, you are required to obtain the LCQ.
The LCQ is a valuable qualification for anyone working within licensed premises. Having a good understanding of the law and host responsibility is critical for the safe and responsible service of alcohol.
Complete this course and you will receive the formal LCQ certificate from ServiceIQ and have the Unit Standards registered on your Record of Achievement with NZQA.
This course consists of two NZQA Unit Standards:
Unit Standard 4646 v9:
Demonstrate knowledge of the Sale and Supply of Alcohol Act 2012 and its implications for licensed premises.
Unit Standard 16705 v6:
Demonstrate knowledge of Host Responsibility requirements as a Duty Manager of licensed premises.
The classroom option suits most people, regardless of their level of experience, and is available in a number of locations throughout the country. The benefit of this mode of delivery is that the course is conducted by a qualified specialist Tutor who is able to answer questions throughout the course and add context to the content of the course.
The classroom tutorial is usually a one-day short course, however some providers conduct the course over two sessions.
