South Australian legislation requires all persons involved in the sale and supply of liquor on South Australian premises to undertake Responsible Service of Alcohol (RSA) training. A person under the age of 18 cannot serve or sell alcohol, but may still work in a licenced venue that does. A licensed venue is an environment where alcohol is served such as in bars, hotels, beer gardens, restaurants, airlines, catered functions or wineries/wine tastings. SITHFAB002 Provide Responsible Service of Alcohol (RSA) provides a nationally recognised Statement of Attainment and allows you to work in South Australia licensed venues. Please be aware that NO alcohol is served, handled or distributed during the delivery of this unit of the Certificate III in Hospitality course at Paralowie R-12 School by Salford College. Students will learn the responsible practices to be undertaken wherever alcohol is sold or served, and develop the necessary knowledge and skills for that purpose. Student learning is also supported by role play scenarios. Students will develop knowledge in the management and reporting of intoxicated persons, and the responsibilities of the hospitality organisation with respect to the service of alcohol. Responsible Service of Alcohol is a pre-requisite of the "Provide table service of food and beverage" Unit within this qualification. The RSA unit is not compulsory and this can be adjusted for individual students, but may impact on the total number of SACE points that may be achieved.The RSA unit must be updated every three (3) years.
