At the completion of our online RSA course, students should be able to -

  • Provide responsible sale and service of alcoholic beverages.
  • A deep understanding of the law and facts relating to alcohol consumption and the responsible service of alcohol.
  • Ability to understand when a customer is intoxicated and politely refuse them if necessary, providing them with valid reasons for denial.
  • Ability to minimise harm to avoid customer intoxication, e.g. by suggesting food, water, low-concentration drinks
  • Always follow legislation and licensing requirements when selling or serving alcohol [You cannot mess with this, it can cause you lose $$$]
  • Provide accurate information to customers on alcoholic beverages according to organisation or house policy and government legislation [As every action has equal and opposite reaction. So, providing incorrect information can lead to incorrect action by your employer against you]
  • A standard drink contains approximately 10 grams of alcohol [Not all glasses hold just 10 grams of alcohol]
  • Recognise erratic drinking patterns as an early sign of possible intoxication and take appropriate action [Offer food, water, non-alcoholic beverages and even organise transport if necessary… that's the best you can do]
  • Politely decline requests for alcohol to be dispensed [Have the courage to say NO. Do the right thing because it is right]
  • Identify customers to whom sale or service must be refused [Minors, intoxicated or disorderly person must not be entertained rather you must demotivate them. And for Minors, be careful, they can be Smart, always ask for proof of age prior to sale or service]
  • Identify situations that pose a threat to the safety or security of colleagues, customers or property [These events are unexpected, be prepared to deal with them]
  • If necessary, seek assistance from manager or supervisor [Don't try to do everything and anything... It's no harm to involve a more experienced person]
  • 'Time' and 'NO alcohol' are the only ways that can sober the effect of alcohol [It's good to take to break every now and again]
Responsible practices must be undertaken wherever alcohol is sold or served, including where alcohol samples are served during on-site product tastings. This unit, therefore, applies to any workplace where alcohol is sold or served, including all types of hospitality venues, packaged liquor outlets and wineries, breweries and distilleries. The unit applies to all levels of sales personnel involved in the sale, service and promotional service of alcohol in licensed premises. Those selling or serving alcohol may include food and beverage attendants; packaged liquor sales persons selling in person, over the phone or online; winery, brewery and distillery cellar door staff; 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. RSA training may also need to be completed by other staff who have alcohol service responsibilities, such as:
  • Volunteers
  • Promotional staff
  • Contract employees
  • Directors of registered clubs
