Management of Licenced Premises (MLP) 1 is the official course required for all licensees and unrestricted Approved Managers in Western Australia and is approved by the WA Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries. It has been developed to assist WA Licensees and Unrestricted Approved Managers to demonstrate their compliance with the Liquor Control Act 1988 (‘the Act’).
An Unrestricted Approved Manager is a manager of commercially licensed premises such as a tavern, liquor store, or venue with a special facility licence.
Well managed premises and the responsible service of alcohol is an important tool in providing consumers with safer venues, and this training provides you, as a licensee or approved manager, with important skills and knowledge about the State’s liquor laws; alcohol and the effects of excessive alcohol intake; how to refuse service and your responsibilities within The Act.
To find out more about your obligations and requirements under the Liquor Control Act 1988, please visit the Department’s website.
Please note, this course is only applicable in Western Australia. Each state and territory in Australia has its own unique MLP certificate.
This is an online course which will take approximately 8 hours to complete, following which you will have to complete online and verbal assessments.
Upon enrolling, you will have access to the course for 90 days. Within this time, you must successfully complete:
- online learning
- written questions
- verbal assessment
If you have not successfully completed all above components within 90 days of enrolment, you will be required to re-enrol in the course.
Upon successful completion of all learning and assessments for this course, you will receive a statement of attainment for the Nationally Recognised Unit of Competency:

Following completion of the Management of Licenced Premises (MLP) 1 course, you can also complete the Management of Licensed Premises (MLP) 2 course. MLP 2 is intended for those who operate licensed premises such as bars, taverns, pubs, nightclubs, hotels, restaurants, special events, liquor stores, etc.
If you are applying to become a licensee of a Licensed Premises, you are required to demonstrate that you have successfully completed an approved Course in the Management of Licensed Premises (and the pre-requisite Responsible Service of Alcohol course).
Similarly, applicants for a restricted or unrestricted manager approval must successfully complete either an approved Course in the Management of Licensed Premises and or in the Responsible Service of Alcohol, depending on the type of approval they are seeking.
