RSA NSW & Interstate

Need the RSA for work in more than one state in Australia?

Legislation regarding RSA varies from state to state.

How does this affect you?

 

Whether you’re a local resident or a traveller, you will be required to complete a RSA course in order to work in a venue which sells, supplies and/or serves alcohol.

 

Common scenario – you live and work in Sydney NSW but are visiting interstate for a couple of months and hope to pick up bar work. Will your NSW RSA suffice? The answer is NO! Owing to different state legislations regarding the responsible service of alcohol (RSA), individuals are required to comply with the RSA requirements in the specific state or territory they wish to work in.

 

Whether you’re completing the NSW RSA, QLD RSA, VIC RSA, SA RSA, WA RSA, NT RSA, ACT RSA or TAS RSA (you get the drift), this information will be of use to you.

 

Is the RSA required in all states of Australia?

YES!

 

What are the RSA requirements in all states/territories of Australia?

RSA NSW: To be awarded the RSA for NSW, you must complete the NSW RSA with an approved training provider in ONLY the classroom format. At completion, you will be awarded with the Statement of Attainment (SITHFAB009A or SITHFAB201) issued by the Registered Training Organisation (RTO) and the NSW RSA Interim Certificate (application for the NSW RSA Photo Competency Card) issued by the Office of Liquor, Gaming & Racing (OLGR).

RSA QLD: To be awarded the RSA for QLD, you must complete the QLD RSA with an approved training provider in either the Classroom or Online format.

RSA VIC: To be awarded the RSA for VIC, you must complete the VIC RSA with an approved training provider in the Classroom format only. RSA Online training is not recognised in Victoria.

RSA SA: To be awarded the RSA for SA, you must complete the SA RSA with an approved training provider in either the Classroom or Online format.

RSA WA: To be awarded the RSA for WA, you must complete the WA RSA with an approved training provider in either the Classroom or Online format.

RSA NT: To be awarded the RSA for NT, you must complete the NT RSA with an approved training provider in either the Classroom or Online format.

Which states/territories offer a RSA Bridging/Refresher option?

If you hold a current RSA certificate, you may be eligible to “bridge” it to a new state or territory in Australia. For example, for RSA NSW, if you have the Statement of Attainment for SITHFAB009A or SITHFAB201, you can enrol into the NSW RSA Bridging course to have your previous training recognised. All states and territories have “bridging” or “refresher” options available for RSA, however, RSA Online training is not recognised by all. This includes New South Wales, Victoria, Australian Capital Terriorty and Tasmania.

 

If I have the NSW RSA, what other states can I work in?

The NSW RSA Photo Competency Card issued at completion of NSW RSA is not recognised in other states, however, the Statement of Attainment is recognised when completing a RSA Bridging or Refresher course interstate. You must enroll into a RSA Bridging or Refresher course in the state or territory you wish to work in.

 

If I have the RSA from interstate but want to work in NSW, what can I do?

The Provide Responsible Service of Alcohol (SITHFAB009A or SITHFAB201) is a national competency. If you have a current interstate RSA Statement of Attainment, you can complete the NSW RSA Bridging Course and receive the NSW RSA for working purposes. If you cannot produce the Statement of Attainment, you can complete the NSW RSA in Classroom. The NSW RSA is available in classroom at Sydney RSAMiranda RSA or Campbelltown RSA.

 

Where can I go for further information on RSA recognition interstate?

 

Australian Training Solutions is an approved training provider for NSW RSA, Online RSA NSW and RSA NSW Bridging. At this point in time both the NSW RSA Online & NSW RSA Bridging courses have been suspended by the NSW government. The NSW RSA can only be completed in the Classroom.
