Tourism, Travel and Hospitality Training Package Development

Under the direction of the Tourism, Travel and Hospitality Industry Reference Committee (IRC) and the Responsible Service of Alcohol Technical Advisory Committee (TAC), SkillsIQ is preparing a Case for Change for an update to Training Package Products within the SIT Tourism, Travel and Hospitality Training Package.

The Case for Change proposes the update Training Package Products relating to the responsible service of alcohol.

The Tourism, Travel and Hospitality Industry Reference Committee (IRC) is responsible for ensuring that nationally recognised Qualifications deliver the skills and knowledge required to equip the sectors under its remit with a highly skilled workforce.

SkillsIQ, under the direction of the Tourism, Travel and Hospitality IRC and the Responsible Service of Alcohol Technical Advisory Committee (TAC), has prepared a Case for Change to update one Unit of Competency and one Skill Set relating to the responsible service of alcohol (RSA). 

Unit of Competency
SITHFAB002 Provide responsible service of alcohol

Skill Set
SITSS00055 Responsible Service of Alcohol Skill Set

At present, all states and territories have their own legislation and regulation which is referenced and incorporated in training regarding RSA. A review and update is required to ensure competencies are up-to-date and also work toward an RSA Unit of Competency that can be used across all jurisdictions to better address key industry needs.

The project will look to address the following key points:

  • cross-jurisdictional consistency of training
  • changes to regulation in regard to RSA
  • changes to training practices in relation to RSA

This Case for Change proposes to update the Training Package Products outlined above, in order to address the fundamental need for consistency in RSA training across the country, and to ensure training practices are up to date with what industry needs.
