RSA Training

Accredited RSA Training Across Victoria

Completing an approved Responsible Service of Alcohol (RSA) program gives participants the skills and knowledge to contribute to a safe and enjoyable environment in licensed premises.

Face-to-face RSA training is mandatory for licensees and staff selling, offering or serving liquor for general, on-premises, late night and packaged liquor licenses. Licensees and staff are subject to mandatory RSA requirements and have one month from the date they first sell, offer for sale or serve liquor on the licensed premises to complete an RSA training program.

On Tap Liquor Consulting offers accredited industry courses which satisfy this training requirement in partnership with Robust Investments Pty Ltd (T/A Liquor Consultancy Services; RTO 2178). We hold regular training sessions across Western Victoria including Ballarat, Geelong, Ararat, Ballan, Daylesford, Creswick, Woodend and more. We are also able to provide on-site training sessions for small groups or individuals at a place and time that suits you.
