Free RSA Courses To Help Ease Big Staff Shortages
The NSW Government will fund 5,000 fee-free Responsible Service of Alcohol (RSA) courses to support new workers to enter the hospitality industry and help ease the staffing pressure on licensed hospitality venues. The hospitality sector makes up over 2 percent of total gross value added to the NSW economy and supports more than 300,000 jobs.
