How To Get Your RSA Certificate Fast



If you’re a backpacker looking to work in a bar or pub or someone working in the hospitality industry as a career in NSW, it is mandatory for you to complete Responsible Service of Alcohol training.

Your RSA certificate must be kept on your workplace premises or you and your employer could receive substantial fines and risk losing your license.

Fortunately this training can be completed quickly, easily and affordably online, through a trusted, industry leading Registered Training Organisation and it doesn’t matter where in NSW you are, you can complete the training.

The Online RSA Course NSW eliminates the need for personal training by providing convenient and cost efficient training from the comfort of your own home, all you need is a computer and an internet connection to begin your course online.

The content of the course has been supplied by OLGR NSW, and must be used consistently by each RTO, within their own online portal systems, sometimes known as Learning Management Systems (LMS). So you know you are receiving the very best training of the highest standards set out by the OLGR NSW.

Why is this so important?

According to a recent post on University of NSW website, alcohol fuelled violence in the state seems to be on the rise. This is a strange phenomenon considering that alcohol consumption overall is decreasing. This leads us to question whether alcohol is being responsibly served and consumed.

The post explained:

Over the last decade or so, data from the Australian Bureau of Statistics have shown almost no change in the amount of alcohol consumed per person in Australia. In 2000/01, it was 10.15 litres of pure alcohol, while in 2010/11 (the most recent year for which data are available), it was 9.99 litres. In contrast, rates of alcohol-related harm are increasing.

Recent studies in Victoria of both adults and young people have found sharp increases in a range of problems from alcohol. This includes rates of alcohol-related hospitalisations, presentations at emergency departments due to intoxication, late-night assaults, domestic violence involving alcohol and alcohol treatment.

And a national study of alcohol-related harm between 1995 and 2006 found increases in alcohol-related hospitalisations in all states.


Responsibly serving alcohol is one of the ways the government is attempting to tackle alcohol fuelled violence and other social problems caused by alcohol abuse and misuse.

Training on how to serve alcohol properly is not only good for the community and nation as a whole, but will also ensure your work experience is more pleasant and safer.
