When you apply to the Council for a Manager’s Certificate you need to provide evidence that you hold the prescribed qualification as set by the Sale and Supply of Alcohol Regulations 2013, Section 23. To achieve this, you are required to attend a course of training to obtain your Licence Controller’s Qualification which is regulated by the Hospitality Standards Institute. You must gain the Unit Standards 4646 and 16705. Unit 4646 requires you to demonstrate knowledge of the Act, and 16705 your knowledge of host responsibility as a manager.

When you renew your Manager’s Certificate, if you obtained your LCQ before 18 December 2013 and you do not have a Licence Controller Qualification Bridging Test, you will need to sit the LCQ again.
