What is RSA training?

Responsible service of alcohol training (RSA) is a national qualification. Its focus is on serving and supplying alcohol legally and safely. It may include different information depending on your state or territory legislation. 

In your RSA Course Australia, you’ll learn about the critical nature of Duty of Care: a legal obligation that requires you to adhere to a standard of reasonable care while performing any work that could potentially cause harm to others.

This course covers your state or territory regulations related to the provision of alcohol. You’ll also learn about appropriate limits, how to identify early warning signs of intoxication, and how to stop serving someone when the situation warrants it.

Formal RSA training is needed when it comes to working in any licenced environment, including but not limited to bars, pubs, clubs, restaurants and airlines. Your employer will need to obtain acceptable proof that you have undertaken the qualification as part of their licensing requirements.

The RSA Course Australia is officially coded as SITHFAB021 Provide responsible service of alcohol, and is nationally recognised. RTOs like Barista Courses Australia are the only businesses that can provide accredited training in this area.

What is RSG training?

If you plan to work in an establishment that provides gambling services to patrons, you will need a qualification. 

As mentioned previously, in New South Wales, the mandatory certification required is called Undertake responsible conduct of gambling (RCG). In other Australian states and territories, Provide responsible gambling services (RSG) certificate is name of the recognised qualification. Western Australia is currently the only state that does not require an RSG in order to gain employment in the gaming industry.

Our RSG course will provide you with the skills and knowledge needed to provide responsible service of gambling to patrons in a safe and legal way. You’ll also learn the important processes when it comes to helping customers who need assistance with gambling problems. 

Getting an RSG / RCG certificate is an easy way to gain employment quickly in the hospitality industry, especially in states where the gambling laws are quite strict. If you’re providing any services that relate to gambling – even just serving in a pokie room – you’ll need this qualification (everywhere except WA).

What is Barista Training?

Barista Courses Australia teaches you everything you need to become an amazing barista that works safely and effectively. You’ll be able to create coffee that looks and tastes amazing and understand how to work safely, hygienically, and efficiently. 

Our Barista training gives you an in-depth look at the foundations and history of coffee, from beans to the cup. You’ll walk away from your course feeling confident that you know to handle yourself among the most dedicated coffee connoisseurs.

Why do I need barista training?

Coffee is like art these days. Your average consumer definitely knows more about a quality cup of coffee than they did twenty years ago. People have their favourite cafes, their favourite blends, their favourite baristas. Wouldn’t it be nice if that was you? 

If you want to be a really great barista, the proper training is essential. 

Barista training also looks great on your resume and shows potential employers that you are proactive when it comes to getting the skills you need to succeed in the hospitality industry. 

It also demonstrates that you’re across the basics of food and drink preparation and hygiene, which are important skills to have when dealing with the public.

Do I need RSG Certificate?

The various state governments have different regulations surrounding responsible gambling services training.

Even though some states don’t need you to be have received your certification in responsible gambling services training before you start work, it is still worth doing RSG / RCG training before applying for a related job in the industry. 

Most employers in the hospitality industry want staff who can immediately step into a role and take it on, with minimal training. If you have already completed your RSG then this may boost your resume.

Everyone who carries out any duties concerning gambling needs to be certified, including licensees, gaming nominees and gaming room attendants. Even other staff in the venue need an RSG, if they perform duties such as witnessing payouts, issuing keys for the gaming machines, or arranging repairs to gaming equipment.

Do I need an RSA to work at licensed premises?

You sure do. Even if you’re just an alcohol rep or a security guard. If you’re working in a licenced environment, you need an RSA.

You should check with your relevant state or territory licensing authority because some states allow a grace period of us to six months for you to gain your RSA after commencing employment.

Which RSA / Barista course should I do?

SITHFAB021, Provide responsible service of alcohol is the nationally accredited RSA course. You might see some introductory courses out there that are tempting because they’re cheap, but they won’t give you the qualifications you need.

For gambling, and competencies are call SITHGAM022, Provide responsible gambling services, and Undertake responsible gambling services (for New South Wales only)

Our complete Barista course comprises two units: SITHFAB025, Prepare and serve espresso coffee + SITXFSA005, Use hygienic practices for food safety. These cover all the basic skills you will need to start working as a barista.

Does RSA / RSG expire?

Each state and territory has different laws around RSA / RSG certificate expiration. It does not expire in some states, but other states may require refresher training every three years. Please check with your relevant state or territory’s liquor and gaming governing body.

Can I complete an RSA / RSG / Barista course online?

RSA / RSG training can be conducted online. 

Barista training is a very hands-on course that requires practice with the espresso machines, so it needs to be done face-to-face. 

However, please note that online RSG certification is currently only accepted in SA, QLD, WA, and NT. RSA Online courses are valid in QLD, WA, SA, NT, ACT and TAS, while VIC and NSW only accept the qualification if the training course was undertaken face-to-face.

  • Assist customers with questions about their order, and recommend options
  • Be able to read and understand equipment manuals
  • Deal with cash payouts and cheques
  • Write out orders
