The British Institute of Innkeeping's awards body, the BIIAB, has published the handbooks for its new qualifications - the Licensee's National Drugs Certificate and the Door Supervisor's National Certificate.
The handbooks contain all the information necessary to pass the drugs certificate and stage one of the door supervisor's certificate.
The Licensee's National Drugs Certificate handbook has a foreword by drugs tsar Keith Hellawell and begins by explaining the law relating to illegal drugs and how it affects the licensed trade.
It then has information on how to devise a drugs strategy and how to deal with dealers and drugs on the premises.
The Door Supervisor's National Certificate handbook has advice on their role and the social skills necessary to do the job and facts about licensing law, emergencies, drugs, eviction, use of force and offensive weapons.
All the information needed to pass stage one of the qualification is included in the handbook as well as the necessary information for the drugs awareness and fire safety modules of stage two.
The conflict management and physical interventions modules and the first aid part of stage two are covered by external courses, and the handbook contains information about those courses.
