The Responsible Service of Alcohol (RSA) (SITHFAB002 Provide responsible service of alcohol) – Tasmania provides you with the knowledge and skills to sell and serve alcohol responsibly, in compliance with liquor laws in Tasmania and as required by your workplace’s policies and procedures.

Through interactive content and realistic scenarios, upon successful completion of this course you will be able to effectively:
- Serve standard-sized drinks and assist customers to drink within appropriate limits
