Provide Responsible Service of Alcohol (RSA) Statement of Attainment is an Australian Nationally Recognised Qualification. It covers the legal requirements for a person to work in a bar or restaurant serving alcohol. It focuses on the areas of identifying intoxicated customers, customer service with attention to refusal of service to patrons, compliance with legal issues and assisting customers to drink sensibly. This course is designed for staff members who are  currently working in the industry or intend to work in the hospitality industry. It is a requirement in Western Australia that all staff working in venues that sell alcoholic beverages undertake this course.
