The AHA Management of Licensed Premises – MLP1 course, is approved by the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries to deliver the Approved Managers Course. Each licensee and primary approved manager must complete a course in the Management of Licensed Premises conducted by an approved and accredited training provider, which the AHA is the oldest and most established. Completion of the AHA MLP course fulfills the training requirements to become an Approved Manager or Licensee in WA.
A licensing system for the approval of Managers is in place in Western Australia. This licensing framework permits individuals to be licensed to work anywhere in the State, irrespective of what premises they work at.
To read more about the framework and download view the lodgement guide, click here.
Once you have completed your Approved Managers Course with the AHA(WA) and have received your certificate, you must now apply to be an Approved Manager and obtain an approved manager ID card from the Department of Racing, Gaming & Liquor.
The licensee needs to appoint an individual (the “Applicant”) to supervise and manage the licensed premises at all times when business is conducted at those premises.
For those licences where there is only one licensee and the licensee is a natural person (an individual), that person may personally supervise and manage the licensed premises as if he/she were an approved unrestricted manager.
There are two categories for the Applicant to choose from:
UNRESTRICTED – Enables you to be employed as an Approved Manager at any type of licensed premisesRESTRICTED – Enables you to be employed as an Approved Manager at a licensed Club. Club Restricted & Occasional licensed premises only
Read the Department of Racing, Gaming and Liquor’s Approved Manager Lodgement Guide. This will explain all the steps you need to complete to obtain your Approved Managers ID card.
