If the answer is ‘Yes’ then it is important that your club committee members attend this information seminar to receive up‐to‐date information.

It is a requirement that Licence applicants complete the approved course to have an adequate knowledge of liquor laws and licensee obligations under the law. Topics covered include:

  • understanding the different types of liquor licences for clubs
  • understanding the club rules and types of visitors
  • understanding the supply of liquor to members under a licence
  • understanding and interpreting a liquor licence
  • understanding a red-line plan
  • maintenance of sign-in registers

Club Seminar training can be undertaken by club committee members in place of new entrant training in order to meet training requirements only for restricted club licences and renewable limited club licences.

The course helps sporting and community clubs manage alcohol responsibly by understanding the legal responsibilities associated with holding a liquor licence.
