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.

"How do the students source these?. Especially if they are not currently working in the industry. This as a performance criteria is above the expectations for this AQF level and should be more directed at a supervisor or manager. PE 4.1 Those who appear to be under the influence of illicit substances or other drugs - This is still intoxicated. Intoxicated is not defined strictly to alcohol, so the procedure for refusing service is still the same. "

"I would like to know what the rationale is behind the knowledge evidence for everything that lives under the dot point "impact of excessive drinking on:". Others have raised the issue of customers at heightened risk and I agree this is problematic. For so much attention to be placed on the various manifestations of the impact of excessive drinking there must be a good justification. It seems out of place to be asking those needing this unit to be contemplating such broad social and clinical issues. If the aim of this section is to provide context for the purpose of the legislation, then it is superfluous. If the aim is to motivate RSA holders to adhere to the law then ditto. If the aim is to provide RSA holders the power to make sweeping generalisations or quote case law and public health data at their patrons then maybe its useful. Is that what the industry really needs from this unit? "
