do you PASS? for regulators

The Fair Trading Award do you PASS? module is a half day training course delivered to small businesses by do you PASS? accredited trainers. It focuses on the core issue of the prevention of illegal underage sales with specific emphasis on the requirements of the law, diligence and proxy sales. 

It is a highly interactive module that encourages discussion between delegates of the issues that they face when selling age restricted products. Trainers will administer a small test at the conclusion of the module with successful candidates being awarded the FTA certificate. 

The module is ONLY delivered by CTSI accredited trainers who have successfully completed a training course with CTSI to ensure a consistant delivery and approach. 


What our FTA Do you PASS? accredited trainers say: 

"We had a 100% refusal rate and asking for ID from all the premises trained".

"I see the use of the Do You PASS training module as a real success in Salford. It's used both proactively, as a preventative measure in helping businesses prevent underage sales, and as a reactive alternative enforcement action, in order to train those who have committed underage sales. No underage sales have taken place at premises from which staff have been trained following an underage sale."

"We have used Do You PASS? as part of our Community Alcohol Partnership in the Stanley area of County Durham. Stanley had originally been identified as having the worst rate of Alcohol related Anti Social behaviour in the whole County, together with the highest number of UAS Test purchase failures. 

Several courses were run for all the traders and staff in the area over a period of 3 months towards the end of 2011. Since then the numbers of alcohol related ASB has dropped dramatically, with only one area still being a problem, around the one off licence that has not been on the training, and refused to be part of the Project."
