RSA training is mandatory for anyone who is involved in the sale, supply or service of alcohol in a licensed venue, including licensees and staff members. This includes general, on-premises, late night and packaged liquor licences. 

The aim of RSA training is to provide individuals with the knowledge and skills necessary to promote responsible service and consumption of alcohol, as well as to ensure the safety and wellbeing of both customers and staff.

But remember, in Australia, it's not just a good idea to hold your RSA certificate - it's the law! So sign up today and join the ranks of responsible servers all across the country.


The unit applies to all levels of personnel involved in the sale, service, including promotional service and supply of alcohol in licensed premises. 

Those selling or serving alcohol may include food and beverage attendants; packaged liquor salespersons selling in person, over the phone or online; winery, brewery and distillery cellar door staff; delivery services and supplier sales representatives. 

The unit also applies to security staff who monitor customer behaviour and to the licensee who is ultimately responsible for responsible service of alcohol (RSA) management.

 Did you know that some states in Australia, like NSW, Victoria, or the ACT, require you to refresh your RSA certification every 3-5 years? It's important to stay up to date with the latest updates and requirements in your state. 

We'll even send you a reminder when it's time for renewal or you can download the free Job Trainer Australia app for updates. If you're moving to a different state, check their RSA requirements as you may only need to complete an online bridging unit.

The term 'language, literacy, numeracy, and digital' (LLND) refers to core skills, learning, reading, writing, oral communication and numeracy. These core skills are required by an individual completing this unit.

Training providers are responsible for ensuring that learners have the necessary Language, Literacy, Numeracy, and Digital (LLND) competencies for their chosen training program. This involves using assessment tools to evaluate a learner's LLND skills before enrolling them in a course. This helps ensure that learners have the appropriate level of LLND skills needed to succeed in the course, leading to better outcomes and increased confidence.

Job Trainer Australia takes this responsibility seriously and requires all potential learners to complete a short 6-question LLND assessment prior to course enrolment, to help ensure their success in the training course. 

This short assessment is not counted towards the final result, but learners are required to obtain at least 4 out of the 6 questions correct. Any identified skill gaps will prompt Job Trainer Australia to call the learner to discuss further.

By completing this short assessment, learners can be confident that they have the necessary LLND skills to succeed in their chosen course.

Oral Communication:

Ability to provide information on responsible service of alcohol laws in a way that is easily understandable for customers.

Ability to speak firmly and clearly with intoxicated customers in a manner that de-escalates conflict.

Numeracy Skills:
