SkillsIQ, under the direction of the Tourism, Travel and Hospitality Industry Reference Committee (IRC) and the Responsible Service of Alcohol Technical Advisory Committee (TAC), is undertaking a project to update Training Package Products within the SIT Tourism, Travel and Hospitality Training Package relating to Responsible Service of Alcohol (RSA).
At present, all states and territories have their own legislation and regulation relating to responsible service of alcohol (RSA), which is referenced and incorporated in training regarding RSA. A review and update of the current Training Package Products that relate to RSA is required to ensure competencies are up-to-date and also to work toward an RSA Unit of Competency that can be used across all jurisdictions to better address key industry needs.
This project looks 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.
Updates to the Training Package Products outlined above, will assist in addressing the fundamental need for consistency in RSA training across the country, and to ensure training practices are able to meet industry needs.
More information on the project may be found on the RSA Project Page or in the Consultation Guide which may be downloaded at the bottom of this page.
