Responsible management of licensed venues (RMLV) training

It is mandatory for liquor licensees (if individuals), approved managers and some permit holders to have a current responsible management of licensed venues (RMLV) certificate.

Approved RMLV trainers

If you require RMLV training, the Office of Liquor and Gaming Regulation (OLGR) provides a list of RMLV approved trainers to choose from. If you are an approved RMLV trainer OLGR provides approved RMLV trainer resources for your use.

RMLV course delivery

The course is a minimum of 10 hours, and is delivered by an approved trainer through either of the following methods:

  • in person - this can be in a classroom or one-on-one over 2 days
  • video conferencing - this can be done using online video conferencing tools. This must be delivered by an approved trainer and completed within 7 consecutive days from when you start the course.

Note: If you are about to obtain a responsible management of licensed venues (RMLV) licensees' course certificate, or if you already hold a current certificate, you are not required to also train in the responsible service of alcohol (RSA).

RMLV certificate

When you successfully complete the course, the approved trainer will issue you with a RMLV certificate. The certificate will remain current for 3 years. It is your responsibility to ensure your training is renewed before your current certificate expires.

RMLV for approved managers

Approved managers must hold a current RMLV certificate. This is valid for 3 years. The licensee must ensure approved managers working at a licensed premises have a copy of their current certificate.

Exemptions from having to employ an approved manager are outlined in Guideline 43: Approved managers.
