Once I’ve got the RSA Certificate, how do I get a job?

There are heaps of different ways to find a job in the hospitality industry. Look online – on jobs like seek, careerone or have a look in the local area. More often than not, getting a job in the hospitality industry is all about being persistent and going into venues and asking for a job directly. If they ask if you have any experience, be open and honest with them – tell them that you don’t but you’re more than willing to put in your own time to learn the ropes. This goes a really long way to getting a job – to a couple of short shifts on your own time while they train you. It might seem like you’re working for free but it’s just to help you get your foot in the door. I’ve been a manager for years in hospitality and when someone shows initiative like this, it always helped with their application. Good luck!

    Can you please give me detailed information about the RSA course?
    When is the earliest date that I can take the course?
    I already have NSW RSA so in this case is there any change in price or course?
    How many working days do you have to issue the certificated?

    Hi Soonjin Lee,

    Your questions are quite specific so I have passed your question over to a training provider in Canberra that we trust and hopefully they will be able to follow up with you directly.

    Good afternoon,

    I reside in the ACT and my RSA has expired (completed in 2001). I noticed that in Victoria, a refresher course is free of charge. Is there anything available of this nature for Canberra?

    Hi Sam,

    I don’t believe there is. In Victoria they have the RSA refresher but you have to complete it within 3 years for the certificate to remain current. If your certificate is 11 years old I would think you will need to re do it.

    I would contact this training provider who is in Canberra, they’re so great to deal with and will be able to answer your question.

    Thanks for visiting our site!
