Responsible Service of Alcohol

Gaining employment in any venue, pub, club or restaurant in Melbourne, Victoria that is licensed to serve alcohol will require you to attain a Responsible Service of Alcohol (RSA) certificate. The RSA certificate is awarded once you have completed an RSA course that is officially recognised by Liquor Licensing Victoria. Upon completion of our half-day RSA course you will receive the RSA certificate approved by the Chairperson of the Victorian Commission for Gambling and Liquor Regulation (VCGLR).

Under current legislation, RSA courses conducted in Victoria must be held in a classroom environment. Any RSA certificate issued following the completion of an online RSA course is invalid in the state of Victoria. RSA courses conducted under the guidelines set by VCGLR and completed in a registered training venue will be issued with a valid RSA certificate.

Obtaining your Victorian RSA certificate by completing an RSA Course in Melbourne means you can also get your National RSA certificate, enabling you to work both here in Victoria and selected areas interstate.
