Backpacker RSA Training Course – Sydney

In Australia its a legal requirements that you complete Responsible Service of Alcohol (RSA) training before being able to work in licensed premises, i.e a pub, bar, restaurant or nightclub. In QLD, NT, SA & WA courses can be completed online. In TAS, VIC, NSW & ACT however, RSA courses must be completed in a classroom environment with a qualified trainer.

Each state in Australia has it’s own liquor legislation and it’s own RSA accreditation particular to that state. This means that many backpackers will need to get more than one RSA certificate to work across Australia. Its often best to plan your trip and purchase your training in packages upfront – it makes it quicker and easier to find bar work and is cheaper than purchasing courses separately.
