Planning on working in a bar or hotel?

iTFE's RSA course can set you up with the compliance unit you'll need to get started.

But be quick, and book early, classes fill up quickly up to a week ahead of the course.

RSA stands for Responsible Service of Alcohol, and in Victoria and NSW, it is a requirement that anyone working within a licensed alcohol-serving venue holds a Victorian Commission for Gambling and Liquor, Regulation (VCGLR) in Victoria or Liquor and Gaming NSW (L&GNSW) approved RSA Competency Card in NSW.

The RSA course covers legal requirements of the sale and service of alcohol, harm minimisation and duty of care, anticipating problems and managing patrons, assess and monitor the levels of intoxication of patrons, advise patrons on standard drinks and the effects of alcohol.

Note: NSW students on a Student VISA (subclass 500) are not eligible for enrolment.
