What is an RSAT certificate?

RSAT stands for Responsible Supply of Alcohol Training. It’s a course that must be completed by any person that will be making same-day alcohol deliveries to members of the public within the state of New South Wales. As part of the state’s commitment to promoting safe alcohol practices, this training aims to prevent alcohol-related harm, reduce incidents of intoxication, and uphold legal obligations surrounding alcohol supply.

In this article, we’ll explore the key components of the RSAT course in NSW and its significance in fostering a culture of responsible alcohol supply. We’ll also cover a number of frequently asked questions regarding the NSW RSAT.

Who needs an RSAT certificate?

Anyone classed as a same-day alcohol delivery provider will need to hold a valid RSAT. This includes:

  • Food delivery providers that also offer alcohol delivery in addition to their food delivery services
  • Licensed takeaway liquor providers, including both those that offer online and those that offer phone sales within NSW
  • Individuals that provide same-day delivery of alcohol in NSW
  • All other businesses that provide same-day alcohol delivery to the public in NSW.

When is an RSAT not required?

An RSAT is not required for businesses offering same-day delivery of:

  • Alcohol that is packaged and being delivered to another licensed business
  • Under 1.5 litres of packaged alcohol in a hamper, such as a gift hamper or picnic basket (this includes Christmas food hampers with wine).

What is taught in an RSAT course?

A number of topics are covered within the six modules of the RSAT NSW course. These topics include the NSW liquor laws, identifying intoxication, preventing underage drinking, responsibly refusing supply, harm minimisation strategies, and compliance and enforcement within the state.

What is the difference between RSA and RSAT?

The NSW RSAT is a requirement for persons that are involved in the same-day delivery of alcohol within NSW. In contrast, the NSW RSA is for the Responsible Service of Alcohol, and is a legal requirement for those that are involved in the sale or service of alcohol.

When was the NSW RSAT introduced?

The RSAT was introduced by Liquor & Gaming NSW in 2021. From 1 December 2021, it became a requirement that the RSAT be held by anyone making same-day deliveries of alcohol within New South Wales. It’s the responsibility of delivery providers to ensure their employees and contractors hold a valid RSAT certificate.

How long does it take to get an RSAT certificate?

The time it takes to complete your RSAT certificate will depend upon a number of factors. For most people, it should take between 6 to 8 hours to finish your RSAT qualification. With the RSAT NSW Online Course provided by Express Online Training, you can pause and resume your study at any time. This means you can study at your own pace and complete the course in smaller chunks, whenever suits you best.

What is the cost of an RSAT course?

The cost of an RSAT course will vary depending on the provider. As of July 2023, Express Online Training offers the online RSAT course for $25 for the Certificate of Attendance, which can be split into 4 interest-free payments with Afterpay.

You will also need to pay an additional Liquor & Gaming NSW fee of $15 for the Official NSW RSAT Certificate.

How long is an RSAT valid for?

An RSAT certificate is valid for five years from the date of attainment. To renew your NSW RSAT you’ll need to complete the test again and pass the Liquor & Gaming NSW RSAT assessment before your current certificate expires.
