Use another state’s Responsible Service of Aalcohol certificate in Victoria
Another question I have been asked a lot is if RSA certificate from another state of Australia is valid in Victoria. The answer is yes if your certificate satisfies the following conditions:
- Your certificate is not older than 3 years.
- You got your certificate through face to face training.
- Your course has nationally accredited training unit SITHFAB002. Normally they are printed on your certificate.
Once the above conditions are met, you can convert your certificate by doing an online bridging course which is free.
Note: you don’t have to convert your certificate from other state if you are serving alcohol to one-off events of short term functions.
