NSW: Responsible Service of Alcohol (RSA) in New South Wales

Following is an extract from web site of the NSW Office of Liquor,Gaming and Racing. The full page regarding RSA Training is here: OLGR Website

Responsible service of alcohol (RSA) course

The NSW liquor laws require a Board approved RSA course to be completed by:

  • all liquor licensees and club secretaries
  • all people involved in the retail sale, supply or service of liquor in licensed venues. This includes promotional staff, club directors, and volunteers serving liquor under a function licence, and
  • security officers working at licensed venues.

The training requirements do not apply to employees of wholesale, brewer and some vigneron licences.

RSA certificates currently have no expiry date and there is no statutory requirement to undertake refresher training in RSA. However, you must ensure you have completed a course from a Board approved provider.
