“I found the course to be of great value to further my skills as a Venue Manager.  The biggest problem with our industry is that there is little to no training offered by industry for bartenders that have been promoted to a managerial role, most of the time they are thrown into the position after a superior leaves, often in a sink or swim environment.  These people may have never had to liaise with VicPol, Licensing, Council or other authorities and it can be a very daunting task and being able meet with them and ask questions was a very beneficial thing. I got the most out of talking with the Fire Brigade on Essential Services and the rules and guidelines that need to be adhered to.

Being able to meet and share experiences with other managers from different types of venues was another great part of the course, being able to listen to how others have handled situations and problems was a great learning experience for me and I have been able to put some of these into practice in my venue.

I would highly recommend that all managers attend this course.”

Andrew Buntine - Katuk (Pratt Hospitality Group)


“I have several talented young venue managers and I need them to be able to handle a range of social and compliance issues, as well as meet business imperatives. I believe the Advanced RSA course will give them the tools to protect my businesses, but will also build their confidence and enhance their problem-solving skills and their careers.”

Camillo Ippoliti - Revolver, The Toff in Town, Cookie, Boney


“I was involved in the Pilot program for this course and was pleased to be able to discuss the issues involved in managing late night venues. I put ideas forwarded and got great insights and ideas from other managers. We also started to develop some good systems and ideas to use in real practice.”

Grant Gould - Rooftop bar and Cinema, Mesa Verde.


“A course for managers of high risk venues must be current and must be delivered by experts and specialists that share that environment with us. The content is relevant to managers needs and provides opportunity to gain first hand advice guidance in relating learnings to manager’s specific venues.”

Terry O`Malley – Security Manager and educator.
