Achievement of this unit provides credit towards qualifications in tourism, travel, hospitality and holiday parks and resorts in the SIT Tourism, Travel and Hospitality Training Package.
The unit applies to all levels of personnel involved in the sale, service, including promotional service and supply of alcohol in licensed premises. Those selling or serving alcohol may include:
- food and beverage attendants

- winery, brewery and distillery cellar door staff
- delivery services and supplier sales representatives.
The unit also applies to security staff who monitor customer behavior and to the licensee who is ultimately responsible for responsible service of alcohol (RSA) management.
