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 the 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 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 Validation Guide which may be downloaded at the bottom of this page.
Consultation Activities and Timelines
Draft 2 Validation will take place from Wednesday, 16th September to Wednesday, 14th October 2020. During this period input will be sought on the updated Unit of Competency and associated Skill Set relating to the responsible sale, service, delivery or supply of alcohol.
SkillsIQ will host two webinars to seek stakeholder input on the Draft 2 Training Package Products. The same information will be presented at each webinar, so you need only register once.
