Professional Accredited Training for Officers - We provide the CTSI Accredited Introduction to Under Age Sales Enforcement and the Advanced Practitioner in Under Age Sales Enforcement courses.

Test Purchasing Support - The management and coordination of test purchasing can be very challenging, time and resource intensive. The task of maintaining a suitable bank of volunteers, ensuring their protection and welfare, working out-of-hours, delivering a programme of checks on compliance and guaranteeing a follow up educational support visit after each failed test purchase is extensive. Take a look at our information leaflet (PDF 0.7MB) about how law enforcement can bring in additional support and resources on an ad hoc basic to support local test purchasing programmes.
Alternative Sanctions - We provide a means to take shop workers and bar staff out of the criminal justice system if they fail test purchases by providing a process for training and community resolution. In a similar approach to speed awareness training for drivers, our training provision can be tailored to provide an improvement scheme that enables swift resolution without the need for prosecutions or formal enforcement action. Our process is fully compliant with the new PND-E provisions and the out-of-court disposals processes. Take a look at our information leaflet (PDF 0.7MB) or contact us for more information.
