If you are planning to work in the service industry in NSW in an establishment that serves alcohol, you must obtain an RSA Certificate first. This certification is only available through an approved training program and must be completed in a classroom setting. There are no approved online RSE trainings. Edway Training Pty. Ltd. is one of the few approved training centres in NSW where you can obtain an RSA Sydney.
Why Training is Necessary
The NSW State law decrees that only people who are trained to know and understand the consequences of drinking alcohol on individuals and the community, can safely serve alcohol and do so in a responsible manner. For this reason, all students must attend a certified, six hour approved course, in person, to receive the certificate that will allow them to work in the service industry in any enterprise that serves alcohol.
The RSA Course
You must attend the course and pass a written assessment at the end of the class to obtain your RSA.
This six hour approved course will cover:
- Serving Alcohol responsibly in NSW
- Legislative requirements for obtaining the RSA Certificate
- Guidelines for understanding low-risk drinking
- How to prevent intoxication of patrons
- Preventing under-age drinking
- Risk management and preventing dangerous or violent situations
At the end of successfully completing the course, each participant will receive an OLGR NSW certificate which will allow you to immediate work in a business that serves alcohol and a statement of completion that is nationally recognized. Within a week to ten days, a wallet-sized card will be mailed to you.
You can easily enroll online at www.edway.edu.au, to book your seat in one of the many classes offered by Edway. You may enroll at the door, but you face the possibility that the class will be full. You must also present a valid photo ID and do not forget to bring a pen with you. Please make certain to arrive 15 minutes early to avoid any delays in completing all necessary paperwork. You will be glad that you chose Edway Training for your RSA Sydney.
