Responsible Service of Alcohol (RSA) training is endorsed by L&GNSW formally the Office of Liquor and Gaming NSW (OLGR).

The Responsible Service of Alcohol course is part of the NSW government’s ongoing commitment to the implementation of responsible drinking practices. This accredited program has been developed to meet identified needs of industry stakeholders and the community across NSW as well as addressing the required learning outcomes within liquor and licensing.

If you wish to obtain employment in the sale of liquor or you have employees involved in the sale of liquor, you are required to complete the RSA. The course involves learning about better business practices, legalities & responsibilities, facts about alcohol, monitoring the premises and improving the atmosphere.

On completion of the course, you will receive an interim certificate, allowing you to serve alcohol across NSW which is valid for 90 days until you receive your official competency card. With this interim certificate you will be able to apply for a permanent RSA competency card at Service NSW centres.

A competency card is required if you wish to  seek employment within the Kings Cross Precinct in Sydney.

Once you have received your interim certificate you are then able to complete the assessment to receive the Statement of Attainment for the National Unit of Competency SITHFAB201 - Provide responsible service of alcohol.
