NT offers free RSA course for international students


International students in the Territory have been given a helping hand in finding casual hospitality work.

A free online Responsible Service of Alcohol course is now available for the nearly three thousand internationals studying in our region.

Hospitality NT CEO Alex Bruce says its the result of previous options for the course being difficult to access for new arrivals.

"They were erratic and expensive face-to-face courses done for the from time to time and there was a disconnect and a dely so luckily cooler heads have prevailed.," Said Bruce.

"It's spreading already like wildfire through that international student community they know what they're doing.

"We were hearing unfortunately this morning horror stories of some of them having to jump on the planes to Brisbane to do the course so we're just nipping all that in the bud."
