Cross state RSAs now easier

By Yarrawonga Chronicle

The NSW Government has launched a new online bridging course that makes it easier, faster and cheaper for interstate hospitality workers to gain NSW Responsible Service of Alcohol (RSA) accreditation.  

Liquor & Gaming NSW executive director Natasha Mann said workers with RSA competency in other states can now do a short online course to get qualified to serve alcohol in NSW.  

“Instead of needing to complete the full six-hour NSW RSA course, interstate workers can now simply go online and do a short bridging course that takes less than 90 minutes,” Ms Mann said.  

“With the course available online, workers relocating to NSW can complete it before they arrive.

“Once here, they can simply go to any Service NSW centre, get an interim work certificate and start work straight away.

The bridging course costs $85 compared to the $112 minimum costs for the full NSW RSA course.

It covers NSW liquor laws, industry best practice and guidance on how to sell, serve and supply alcohol safely in NSW.
