This varies from State to State
In general RSA training applies to:
- approved managers;
- staff, including promotional staff, involved in the sale, supply and service of alcohol;
- volunteers, including club directors, who have liquor service responsibilities and
- security officers with crowd control duties.
Are the courses suitable for flight attendants?

Which training providers offer the RSA course?
RSA training must be undertaken by a training provider approved by the the required licensing authority.
Students are issued with an approved certificate on behalf of the Authority on completion of the course. This certificate needs to be retained by students and a copy needs to be provided to the venue management, as it is required to be kept in a register by the licensee at the premises.
What is the difference between on-line and face to face training?
Online training for RSA in NSW is only available from a small amount of registered training providers (RTO’s) who have been approved by OLGR NSW. Urban E-Learning are fully approved to deliver RSA NSW training online. Face to face training is provided by a number of Registered Training Providers (RTO’s) in NSW but students are obviously required to attend a classroom-based course, which is not convenient for most people. Our online learning solution provides a convenient alternative to this.
The Australian Club Training RSA NSW Online course is self-paced and doesn’t have to be taken and completed all at once. So you can do the course at your leisure without taking time off work and no need for the expense of parking or transport, babysitters, or time organising these. You also have the option of reviewing your course presentation slides at any stage to refresh your memory, when situations arise at work. You can complete it in the comfort of your own home. The level of training is consistent and not dependent on the trainer that you get on the day.
Are there any other computer requirements?
Speakers or headphones are required in order to watch and listen to the multimedia course presentation slides and the videos provided as part of the case study assessment.
What type of computer is required? Does it work with Mac’s?
The main course content is delivered as multimedia presentation slides which incorporates a voiceover to talk you through each slide, you will also have access to PDF versions of each module to enable you to conveniently review specific areas of information. You will require Adobe Reader which works on Windows or Mac computers to access the PDF course slides. The course slides and Case Study videos can be watched on all computer types as long as you have an internet connection, similar requirements to watching a YouTube video.
What type of internet connection is required?
Internet connections sufficient to watch videos will suffice. Certainly all cable or ADSL and ADSL2 connections will be fine. Additionally we recommend that you are able to watch the course slides and Case Study videos, which would not be viewable on dial-up.
