1) DO I NEED AN RSA TO WORK IN SA?
In South Australia, it’s a legal requirement that you hold a Nationally Recognised Responsible Service of Alcohol Certificate issued by an approved Registered Training Organisation (RTO) if you want to work in a bar and supply or serve alcohol.
Basically, if you serve, prepare, sell, stock or provide samples of alcoholic beverages, you will need to be holding a current RSA certificate.
So, you will need an RSA if you are a:
- Bartender or Glass Collector
- Food and Beverage Attendant
- Room Service or Flight Attendant
- Floor Staff Member and Manager in a Licensed Venue
- Workers at clubs, societies, hotels, cafes, restaurants etc.
- Security staff in licensed premises or event
Therefore a valid RSA is required when working at any licensed venue where alcohol is served and sold, including all types of bars, retail liquor outlets and wineries, breweries and distilleries.
2) HOW WILL THE COURSE BENEFIT ME?
