Published:  23 July, 2008

Inn-Dispensable offers 300 places on courses through-out July

Licensed retail training company Inn-Dispensable is offering licensees 300 free places on responsible retailing courses.

The 20 courses, accredited by the BIIAB, the professional body for the licensed retail sector, in Responsible Alcohol Retailing coincide with the Home Office campaign on underage drinking.

The courses in 15 training centres across the country are being offered to celebrate the company's 15th anniversary.

Delegates only have to pay 12.50 plus VAT and the examination fee.

Philip Davison, Inn-Dispensable managing director, said: "We currently train about 10,000 plus people a year from the industry and thought it would be good to give something back."

Cathie Smith, BIIAB director, added: "We are delighted that an additional 300 responsible retailers will be working in the industry thanks to this initiative.

"The BIIAB Award in Responsible Alcohol Retailing is designed for anyone working in any licensed retail premises, from supermarkets to convenience stores, and who is directly involved in the sale of alcohol.

"The qualification provides essential knowledge and understanding of the law and the social responsibilities surrounding the retail sale of alcohol."

The courses run throughout July in Newcastle upon Tyne, Leeds, Manchester, Leicester, Ipswich, Dudley, Northampton, London, Bristol, Cardiff, Dorking, Havant, Marlow, and Poole.
