What’s an RSA, and do I need one??

You might have seen the acronym RSA popping up all over the place, particularly when it comes to hospitality jobs. RSA (Responsible Service of Alcohol) is required by law to work with and around alcohol all throughout Australia. Even if you are not working in a bar, you are still often required to have one, as most venues are licensed.

Some companies will let you apply for the job without an RSA, but you should get it as soon as possible. Some companies may even help pay for the course!🙂 That’d be lucky! Just ask your new employer about your options – they are there to help!

There are a few websites where you can take the RSA course; a popular one being The Hospitality Institute of Australasia. They offer courses from as little as $18. Click herefor more information. (Please note: Make sure to register for a QUEENSLAND [QLD] RSA, as this is the correct qualification for our state).
