Why do I have to undergo training?
The NSW liquor and gaming machine laws require licensees and staff with liquor and/or gaming machine duties to complete approved training in the responsible service of alcohol and responsible conduct of gambling. These courses provide students with an understanding of their obligations when working in licensed venues and of the harm minimisation framework under which the liquor and gaming machine industries operate in NSW.
Who needs to be trained?
All liquor licensees and staff who have liquor service responsibilities. This includes volunteers and club directors who serve liquor from time to time. This training program is also required to be undertaken by security staff who have crowd control duties at licensed premises.
After successfully completing this course, students are issued with a photo card.
Staff (and their licensee) who serve liquor without having completed an RSA course can face prosecution action under the liquor laws.
Hotel licensees and club secretaries in those hotels and clubs operating gaming machines. Staff who have gaming machine responsibilities, like payouts, providing change and attending to machines, are also required to complete the course.
