Staff called to the bar.
Richard Meredith, Mayor of North Warwickshire, presented the certificates to five borough council workers and five police officers.
The certificates are the first of their kind in the county and were awarded by the British Institute of Innkeeping in conjunction with Local Co-ordinators on Regulatory Services, the Institute of Licensing and the Society of Licensing Practitioners.
Council staff were encouraged to take a college course before sitting the exams - which publicans and landlords will have to take under new laws - so they can better help those who need to take the test for real.
The course and examinations were held in Coventry. Paul Williams, the council's environmental health manager, said: "These certificates are the first in the county and recognise the work everyone has done towards this qualification."
