When looking for jobs, particularly within hospitality, you will probably have seen the acronym RSA. This stands for Responsible Service of Alcohol, which is required by law to work at any venue with a license to sell alcohol. This is throughout all of Australia and every state has their own so you must ensure you register for the correct one!
