The 4 video assessments require you to refuse service to a range of customers including:

  • those who appear to be under the effect of illicit substances or other drugs
  • those in emotional or physical distress
  • those with no food consumption during extended service of alcohol
  • one compliant customer
  • one customer who refuses to leave.

You are required to be 100% visible in each video assessment. We match the person in the video, to the photo ID you upload during the ID verification process.

To complete the video questions, you need one (1) – only one – of the following:

  1. Webcam
  2. Video camera from which you can upload a file, or
  3. Smartphone with internet access and video camera.

Record in the LOWEST resolution possible. Detailed instructions of how to use the video software is in the course. It is very easy.



Unit/Course Description

This unit describes the performance outcomes, skills and knowledge required to responsibly sell or serve alcohol.

Responsible practices must be undertaken wherever alcohol is sold or served, including where alcohol samples are served during on-site product tastings. This unit, therefore, applies to any workplace where alcohol is sold or served, including all types of hospitality venues, packaged liquor outlets and wineries, breweries and distilleries.

The unit applies to all levels of sales personnel involved in the sale, service and promotional service of alcohol in licensed premises. Those selling or serving alcohol may include food and beverage attendants; packaged liquor sales persons selling in person, over the phone or online; winery, brewery and distillery cellar door staff; and supplier sales representatives. The unit also applies to security staff who monitor customer behaviour and to the licensee who is ultimately responsible for responsible service of alcohol (RSA) management.

The unit incorporates the knowledge requirements, under state and territory liquor licensing law, for employees engaged in the sale or service of alcohol.

Certification requirements differ across states and territories. In some cases all people involved in the sale, service and promotional service of alcohol in licensed premises must be certified in this unit. This can include the licensee and security staff.

This unit covers the RSA skill and knowledge requirements common to all States and Territories. Some legislative requirements and knowledge will differ across borders. In some cases after completion of this unit, state and territory liquor authorities require candidates to complete a bridging course to address these specific differences.

Those developing training to support this unit must consult the relevant state or territory liquor licensing authority to determine any accreditation arrangements for courses, trainers and assessors.
