Licence Controller Qualification (LCQ)

The LCQ is legally required for everyone who will be serving alcohol in the hospitality business

LCQ is the prescribed qualification which is required to demonstrate that those applying for, or renewing, their Manager’s Certificate have received recent and relevant training as set out in the Sale and Supply of Alcohol Act 2012. This is a nationally recognised qualification which was developed by ServicelQ, the Industry Training Organisation for New Zealand’s hospitality industry.

When you receive your LCQ Certificate, you can then apply for your Manager’s Certificate through the District Licensing Committee (the liquor licensing section of your local city or district council).
