Australia, with its stunning beaches, rugged outback and world class cities, is a popular destination for backpackers and students on their gap year. Most backpackers have a limited budget and in order to see the country will need to somehow supplement their savings. The hospitality industry and the construction industry are two industries offering a large range of casual and seasonal work ideal for backpackers. In order to work in these industries backpackers will need a White Card (CPCCOHS1001A Work Safely in the Construction Industry), RSA (SITHFAB009A Provide Responsible Service of Alcohol), a Food Handling/Safety Certificate (SITXOHS002A – Follow Workplace Hygiene Procedures) or all three!
The White Card is valid throughout all Australian states and territories and is necessary to work in all jobs, both skilled and unskilled in the construction industry ranging from labourers and landscapers through to carpenters and plumbers. Get a White Card.
The Responsible Service of Alcohol Course – RSA is a legal requirement for anyone working where alcohol is served including all bars, pubs and night clubs and licensed restaurants. Backpackers looking for bar jobs will have to complete this course before starting any work within this industry. Get your RSA Certificate.
Hospitality is another industry providing a great range of jobs for backpackers in Australia, and the food safety course is often a requirement or an advantage in all restaurants, bars, cafes and retail outlets that serve food. Get your Food Handling and Safety Certificate.
Narbil Training provides all three of these courses in a simple online course format. The courses can be done on any computer with internet at anytime, day or night, and are quick, easy and affordable. We also offer a pass now, pay later service with no payment required until the course is finished.
The majority of backpacker jobs in Australia will require certification of some kind, so those planning to work in Australia will be at an advantage if they acquire a White Card, RSA or Food Handling/Food Safety certificate before setting off.
