Overview

A set of skills to equip an individual to sell, serve or supply alcohol responsibly.

This skill set is for personnel involved in the sale, service, promotional service, delivery and supply of alcohol to customers. It also applies to the licensee who is ultimately responsible for managing the responsible service of alcohol.

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

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

Career opportunities

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
  • packaged liquor salespersons selling in person, over the phone or online
  • 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.
