Responsible Service of Alcohol -RSA & Official Posters
Harm minimisation is central to compliance with WA liquor licensing legislation and the obligations on all licensed venues to adhere to RSA or the responsible service of alcohol. The AHA offers RSA training and the Approved Managers Course both online and classroom style. (For training please select the link in the column on the left.)
Both the RSA and the Approved Managers Course offer an understanding of liquor legislation, the skills, knowledge and awareness required to serve alcohol in a responsible manner.
Below is a range of free RSA - Responsible Service of Alcohol - resources for the Approved Managers, staff and venues.
