Tobacco retail

The sale of tobacco is strictly regulated in terms of age restriction, advertising and display

Selling tobacco is an effective way of increasing the sales of your business, however it is important to note that any breach of the government regulations regarding the sale of tobacco could result in large fines, imprisonment and ultimately closure of your business.

The average smoker visits convenience stores more often, purchases more products and spends more than the average shopper. We developed the Tobacco – Retail (England, Scotland, Wales) eLearning modules to provide the legislative guidelines to any retail employee who sells tobacco and to educate them with a basic understanding of the market to increase their sales.

Our modules will enable users to effectively, efficiently and confidently sell tobacco according to law. This Tobacco – Retail training is suitable for all learners working in retail looking for a grasp of the country-specific regulations surrounding tobacco sales. The course also provides a useful overview of the tobacco market’s segments and brands.

Our Tobacco – Retail eLearning modules are part of a group of training modules designed specifically to assist users with being compliant with regulations within different industry sectors. Read here why online training solutions can help your business being compliant and reducing the risk of fines.

The Tobacco – Retail is a fully online interactive course and assessment, accessible on any device, 24/7, with no time limits.  A certificate can be downloaded upon successful completion of the eLearning module.
