Purpose of the training

Managing licensed premises is an important job with much responsibility. As the licensee or manager of venue operating in a higher risk environment, you have additional obligations and responsibilities.

Research shows that assaults at licensed premises are likely to occur and more frequently, between midnight and 3.00am1. Running a large and complex event, such as a music festival, also carries increased risk.

There is a lot you can do to prevent alcohol-related harms from occurring as a result of your business activities.

You have a responsibility to work within your business, to take a risk-based approach and lead your staff as well as engage with your local or broader community, to both reduce the harm associated with alcohol and contribute to creating a sustainable and vibrant industry.

Non-compliance with the NSW liquor laws can result in the suspension or cancellation of your licence and you can be banned from holding a liquor licence or having a financial interest in a licence for a significant period of time.

This course will give you the skills and tools to avoid this while operating in a higher risk environment. It is designed to help you:

  • understand and carry out your legal responsibilities as a licensee operating in a higher risk environment,
  • analyse and minimise the risks relevant to your liquor licence, and
  • manage, operate and lead a successful licensed business.

We want you to be a great risk manager and leader for your business.

 

Why do I need to complete Advanced Licensee training?

You are required to meet complex legislative requirements in relation to the sale, service and supply of liquor in your business. While your RSA and Licensee training will have provided you with a basic understanding of this, as a licensee of a Tier 2 business, your alcohol-related risks are greater. You may be operating a business trading after midnight, running a large and complex event, or are located in a precinct, and so you carry added responsibilities that require further tailored training.

The NSW Government committed to the introduction of a tiered industry training framework to strengthen and enhance liquor industry training standards by building on the existing RSA training. Liquor & Gaming NSW has worked closely with industry peak bodies, NSW Police and select registered training organisations (including us!) to design this new training framework to ensure it meets your training needs.

The Liquor Regulation 2018 introduced the tiered industry training framework which includes two new levels of licensee training that are designed to support you in meeting your compliance obligations and implementing strategies to improve your business operations while providing safe and vibrant environments for your customers. These are:

  • Licensee training, which is designed for licensees, approved managers and club secretaries
  • Advanced Licensee training, which is an additional course for licensees, approved managers and club secretaries operating businesses in higher risk environments.
Who is required to complete Advanced Licensee training?

The Liquor Regulation 2018 requires all licence types classified as Tier 2 to complete Advanced Licensee training.

Tier 2 licences include:

  • those authorised to trade after midnight on a regular basis or otherwise have extended late night trading hours authorisation on a regular basis
  • certain on-premises business types, such as nightclubs (adult relaxation entertainment) and karaoke bars
  • licensees or businesses subject to a regulatory scheme, and
  • those nominated by Liquor & Gaming NSW or the Independent Liquor and Gaming Authority (the Authority).

Tier 2 licences include:

Businesses with any of the following licences that are authorised to trade after midnight or authorised to have extended late-night trading hours on a regular basis:

  • hotel licences
  • general bar licences
  • club licences
  • producer/wholesaler licences endorsed with a drink on-premises authorisation
  • on-premises licences that relate to any of the following:
    • public entertainment venues (other than a cinema)
    • restaurants or cafés (those with a primary service authorisation)
    • tertiary institutions, and
    • vessels
    • caterers

Note for the following:

  • small bar licence – with extended trading authorisation that authorises the sale or supply of liquor on a regular basis between 2.00am and 5.00am.
  1. Certain business types irrespective of whether they operate after midnight:
    • nightclubs (adult relaxation entertainment): whose primary purpose is to provide entertainment in a potentially higher risk environment due to the type and style of entertainment offered and the extended trading hours that are available, and
    • karaoke bars: whose primary purpose is to provide entertainment, often trade past midnight and see peak trade after midnight.
  1. Any licensee or venue subject to a regulatory scheme.
  1. Any licensee directed by Liquor & Gaming NSW or the Independent Liquor and Gaming Authority.
