Licensed Controller Qualification (LCQ)

LCQ logo

We believe training should be simple, fun and memorable. That way, our trainees remember what they have learnt and can apply the knowledge into their workplace.

Everyone in our community will benefit when front-line hospitality and retail staff understand their legal obligations in relation to alcohol and are committed to providing safe drinking environments where customers can enjoy the food & drinks we provide.

If you're involved in the sale and supply of liquor, the License Controller Qualification - LCQ will provide you with the knowledge you need to meet your responsibilities under the law. Currently, our License Controller Qualification training is available in Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch and Palmerston North.

Therefore, every person applying for a Managers Certificate must hold the Licence Controller Qualification (LCQ). Achieving Unit Standards 4646 and 16705 will give you your LCQ.
