Drug And Alcohol Awareness


This course is ideal for staff whose role involves contact with those who may misuse drugs and/or alcohol. This includes retail or hospitality staff who have the right to refuse alcohol sale to customers, or remove them from premises if misuse is suspected. This training will ensure that staff are informed of commonly used illegal drugs, misused pharmaceuticals and alcohol misuse, so that they are able to notice the signs and therefore do something about it. This course will ensure that businesses keep their retail license and remain compliant with the law.
