SITS00071 Responsible service of alcohol 22/07/2024

July 22


Delivery Mode: Classroom (Face-to-Face)
Course Overview

This course will provide you with the skills and ability to serve alcohol in a licensed premise in South Australia. You will be able to work in a role that involves the sale and supply of liquor, such as in cafes, restaurants, bottle shops, or cellar doors. You must be at least 18 years old to complete an RSA. This course can be combined with our 2-day barista or food safety supervision course to prepare you for any hospitality setting.

Responsible practices must be undertaken wherever alcohol is sold, served or supplied, including where alcohol samples are served during on-site product tastings. This unit therefore applies to any workplace where alcohol is sold, served or supplied, including all types of hospitality venues, packaged liquor outlets and wineries, breweries and distilleries.

The unit incorporates the knowledge requirements, under state and territory liquor licensing law, for employees engaged in the sale, service or supply of alcohol.

Accreditation and Employment Pathways

On successful completion of all assessment requirements, the student will be issued with a Statement of Attainment (SOA) for SITSS00071 Responsible service of alcohol.

Certification requirements differ across states and territories. In some cases, all people involved in the sale, service including promotional service and supply of alcohol in licensed premises must be certified in this unit. This can include the licensee and security staff. This unit covers the RSA skill and knowledge requirements common to all States and Territories. Some legislative requirements and knowledge will differ across borders. In some cases, after completion of this unit, state and territory liquor authorities require candidates to complete a bridging course to address these specific differences.

The unit applies to all levels of personnel involved in the sale, service, including promotional service and supply of alcohol in licensed premises. Those selling or serving alcohol may include food and beverage attendants; packaged liquor salespersons selling in person, over the phone or online; winery, brewery and distillery cellar door staff; delivery services and supplier sales representatives. The unit also applies to security staff who monitor customer behaviour and to the licensee who is ultimately responsible for responsible service of alcohol (RSA) management.
