Back in January 2009, a Responsible Service of Alcohol (RSA) certificate became a mandatory requirement for anyone working on licensed premises who is involved in supplying or selling alcohol. An RSA QLD certificate remains valid for three years.
Many staff working on licensed premises will find that their RSA certificate is now approaching its expiry date. Check the date on your RSA certificate to ensure that your certification is still current. Remember it is valid for three years from the date printed on the certificate.
To make sure your RSA certificate remains acceptable to the Queensland OLGR, complete the CTA Training online Responsible Service of Alcohol course before to your certificate expires.
After commencing work on licensed premises, staff have up to 30 days to obtain a RSA QLD certificate.
OLGR officers make regular inspections to licensed premises to ensure employees hold current RSA certifications. Licensees must keep a training register containing copies of current RSA training course certificates. to ensure that staff working at licensed premises hold a current training certificate. Licensees who do not keep a training register or employees staff without a current RSA QLD certificate may be subject to enforcement actions.
