New courses make it easier for interstate workers to start work in NSW liquor industry

Liquor & Gaming NSW is making it faster, easier and cheaper for interstate workers to start working in the NSW liquor industry.

Qualified interstate workers only need to complete the new online NSW Responsible Service of Alcohol (RSA) Bridging course to gain a NSW RSA competency.

The course takes only 90 minutes to complete and costs $85. It focuses on the NSW liquor laws, industry best practice and guidance on how to sell, serve and supply alcohol safely and responsibly in NSW.

Who can take the course?

To be eligible to take the course, interstate workers must have:

  • a national RSA statement of attainment from Queensland, Northern Territory, South Australia, Western Australia or Tasmania issued within the last five years, or
  • an RSA certificate or refresher certificate from Victoria issued within the last three years.
  • an RSA certificate or refresher certification or a national RSA statement of attainment or from Australian Capital Territory issued within the last three years.

The Bridging course is ideal for liquor industry workers living in border towns as it offers more employment options, and it also makes it easier for NSW licensees to recruit appropriately trained staff.

What if the interstate worker is a licensee?

Interstate workers looking to become licensees, approved managers or club secretaries in NSW can skip the NSW Bridging course and simply complete Licensee Training to gain NSW RSA and Licensee Training competencies.
