What is an RMLV?

The Responsible Management of Licensed Venues (RMLV) is an important qualification, designed to promote safe and socially responsible behaviour within licensed establishments. It is a requirement for approved managers and licensees of licenced premises in Queensland to hold a valid RMLV. It is also a requirement for some permit holders.

RMLV is a comprehensive program that covers a number of different areas pertaining to licensed premises. It largely details the responsibilities that managers of licensed venues have, and explains the legislation that must be adhered to.

The RMLV aims to prevent and reduce alcohol-related harms, excessive drinking, and the adverse effects on health and wellbeing. It also covers the regulation of alcohol sales and service.

In this article, we’ll explore the significance of the RMLV and answer a few frequently asked questions regarding the certificate.

Who are RMLV approved trainers?

Can you complete an RMLV course online?

It is possible to complete the RMLV certificate online (via video conferencing) or in a face-to-face training setting. The option you choose depends on what suits your needs best. If you choose to attend a face-to-face training session, this will generally be done in a group environment with other students, however, one-on-one options are sometimes also available. When choosing your training provider, ensure they are a fully accredited Registered Training Organisation.

How long does an RMLV course take?

The time it takes to complete an RMLV certificate will depend on the type of course you choose to take. Regardless of the selection, the course will typically run for a minimum of 10 hours.

If you choose to complete the course face-to-face within a classroom, it will generally be held over a period of two days.

If you choose to complete your RMLV course via online video conferencing, the time it takes may differ slightly. However, the course must still be delivered by an approved trainer.

How long is an RMLV valid for?

An RMLV certificate is valid for 3 years from the course completion date. After this time, the certificate must be renewed in order for it to remain valid. If the certificate is not renewed, the holder will not be able to legally work as a licensee or approved manager within a licensed premises.

The Responsible Management of Licensed Venue certificate plays an important role in helping licensees and approved managers understand their legal obligations when it comes to serving and selling alcohol. We hope you’ve enjoyed learning more about this important qualification.
