Completing your Responsible Service of Alcohol Certificate (or, RSA) permits you to sell or serve alcohol at licenced premises.
Finishing your RSA doesn’t need to be stressful or anxiety-inducing! In fact, Express Online Training offers online RSA courses, that can be taken at any time, even allowing for breaks!
Today, we take a look at 8 RSA tips that could help you complete your RSA. Read on to find out more!
1. Do a little research before you begin your course
If you’re interested in being extra prepared for the course, consider doing a little research into what it will entail before you begin. There are examples of possible RSA test questions available online, and learning a little about the bar and entertainment industry could also prove helpful.
2. Allocate enough time to complete your RSA certificate
It’s awful when you feel rushed to complete a course! To avoid this, make sure you allocate enough time to complete your RSA certificate. One great thing about completing this certificate through Express Online Training is that you can stop your course at any time and resume it later. You can also switch devices if needed, so, for example, you can begin the course on your mobile phone, and then complete it on your desktop PC.
3. Remember the facts and figures taught
Pay attention to the important facts and figures taught during the RSA course. Knowing these well can make you more confident in taking the test, and when you eventually begin work in the field. Keep a notebook or word document handy when studying, and note down any numbers or information that you feel to be important.
4. Be sure to read each question carefully
When it comes to taking the test, make sure you carefully and thoroughly read each question. Read it twice, if it helps you to process it and formulate an answer. Don’t be afraid to take your time with each question on the test, making sure to answer each part to the best of your ability. Remember, with Express Online Training, you can pause your RSA course at any time, allowing you time to reflect on what you have learned and think about the answer you wish to give.
5. Make sure you are prepared for the test
To avoid unnecessary stress, take your time in getting prepared for your RSA test. This can mean a variety of things, from having a pen and paper handy to jot down important notes as you go along, or making sure you have all the correct programs installed for a simple test process.
6. Pick a time when you won’t be interrupted
Whether it’s a few hours after the kids have gone to bed or a peaceful Sunday morning; when it comes to choosing when to take your test, try to pick a time when you will have a little peace and quiet. Choosing a time when you will have minimal distractions can help you to focus all of your attention on processing the new information you will be learning.
7. Choose a test provider that fits your needs
Pick a provider that suits your personal needs. For example, you may find that you learn better at your own pace, online, rather than in a classroom setting. It’s also important that you select a provider that is a Registered Training Organisation (RTO), to ensure the certificate is legitimate. Express Online Training is an RTO that allows those enrolled in an RSA course to pause the course and resume it at any point. Our online RSA courses are also designed to work on all devices, meaning you can even complete an RSA certificate on your mobile device!
