Caught going through red light, will speed awareness course be offered?

Hi, I was convicted of drink driving October 2018, had an 18 month ban and took the drink driving awareness course. I was caught going through a red light by a camera, and I see the options are typically 3 points + £100 fine, or a speed awareness course. I see the SAC is conditional on "You must not have completed or be in the process of completing (i.e. booked and paid) a similar course for a previous offence which occurred within 3 years of this offence."

My question is - would the drink driving offence count as a previous offence in this case, and would the drink driving awareness course count as a 'similar course'?
