A group of boys from our school took part in a two-day course which we attained our RSA (Responsible Service of Alcohol) and RCG (Responsible conduct of Gaming) licenses. The first day took part on the 16th of September at our school in the ILC. The first lesson was about the RSA qualification, which advised us on the responsibilities we will have and the type of jobs we can obtain by having this qualification. This was a very interesting course as it informed myself and my fellow students about how businesses are run when they are selling alcohol and the different types of alcohol that is sold in pubs. On the second day 17th of September the students who took part in the RSA license also took part in the RCG qualification at the Canterbury Hurlstone Park RSL. Here we learnt how RSL and clubs are run, the responsibilities we have as individuals who work at RSL and pubs and also how we can help people who have a gambling issue.

By obtaining the accreditation it widens our job opportunities to work at restaurants, clubs, pubs, bars and liquor stores where alcohol is sold and served.

It was a great opportunity to gain new skills that will make us employable.

We’d like to thank Canterbury Hurlstone Park RSL for training us and Mrs Anton with her organisation of this event.
