The hospitality industry has a constant requirement for the Responsible Service of Alcohol, Responsible Service of Gambling or the Responsible Conduct of Gambling and Food Safety Certificates.

By having passed the RSA training course, they prepared and served alcohol responsibly to customers. They helped customers drink within the appropriate limit as well as assisted alcohol affected customers who drank too much alcohol.
The Responsible Service of Gambling or the Responsible Conduct of Gambling is a requirement for anyone who is working in or around gaming machine related functions. The unit also relates to satisfying the requirements for providing responsible gambling services under state and territory legislation. It is important to note that the terms used to describe this vary across state and territory regulatory bodies and can include responsible conduct of gambling and responsible service of gaming or responsible service of gambling.
