This unit is a requirement for crowd controllers working in the security industry, under the Security and Related Activities (Control) Act 1996, as stated by the Police Security Licensing Branch of Western Australia.
All staff in the hospitality industry must hold a certificate known as the RSA (Responsible Service of Alcohol) before being eligible to work on a licensed premise. There are big fines if you are serving alcohol without a valid RSA.
This unit of competency describes the performance outcomes, skills and knowledge required to responsibly sell or serve alcohol. Responsible practices must be undertaken wherever alcohol is sold or served. This unit, therefore, applies to any workplace where alcohol is sold or served, including all types of hospitality venues, packaged liquor outlets and wineries, breweries and distilleries. To get your RSA certificate, consider enrolling in an RSA course.
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. If you’re involved in security in Western Australia, understanding RSA WA training is crucial.
The unit incorporates the knowledge requirements, under state and territory liquor licensing law, for employees engaged in the sale or service of alcohol.
The Provide Responsible Service of Alcohol Training Course is to be undertaken face to face and incorporated into the Certificate II in Security operations course to allow new security officers to be more employable and job ready.
