When do I have to do the RSA course?

It is mandatory for certain staff involved in the Australian liquor and gaming industries to have obtained the appropriate certification in the Responsible Service of Alcohol (RSA) within a limited time after first starting work. Typically, this is about 30 days.

In the ACT, an RSA must be obtained by staff before starting work.

In TAS, an RSA must be obtained within 3 months of starting employment.

In NT, employees need to have an RSA certificate within seven days of starting work at licensed premises.
