Read below some real feedback from our clients.
"Hi Kane, just wanted to pass on our thanks for sending Glenn. He is a wonderful trainer that has demonstrated a great rapport with the students. Glenn is interesting and engaging and the students are fascinated by his industry knowledge and stories. Glenn knows the content very well and answers student questions with ease. The flexible, easy going approach Glenn has shown towards our students is great for us, as some kids struggle with a disciplinarian. The library staff and myself found Glenn friendly and approachable and expressed appreciation of his manner.
Our school Principal also observed Glenn teaching and would like to acknowledge his efforts at our school, and advise you of Glenn's excellent delivery methods.
We will definitely use Bar Max again."

"Hey Kane
Thank you so much for a very successful RCG course - 100% pass rate and all the students said what a fantastic guy Andrew was. They all responded really positively to him. He's a great trainer and we'd be happy to have him back to our school anytime. Thanks again for your patience and co-operation with getting this course done and dusted!!"

"Hi Kane
I also asked students for their comments in regard to the RSA course delivery and they made the following comments;
"It was very enjoyable and interesting."
"The assessor was talking from real life experiences and he made it very interesting - he was cool!"
"I learnt a lot from the course, it was interesting and Andrew was really good at telling us about what happens in industry."
"Andrew told us lots of stories about when he owned and worked in Pubs - he was speaking from experience and therefore it was relevant and interesting."
"You could tell that Andrew (the assessor) knew what he was talking about. He gave a lot of real life scenarios and that made it interesting."
"I would be interested in doing the RCG course now"
The kids really did enjoy the day and many of them have proudly been showing me their licences. Two boys are already organising jobs in industry because of the qualification (bottle shop and local Bowling Club)
Thanks again Kane, I found liaising with you to organise this far easier than organisations I have dealt with previous. Thank you again."
Mackillop Senior College, Port Macquarie , North Coast
 "Just giving you some feedback from the RSA course ran at Picton last Thursday 1st Sept. Glen was great with the students and they were engaged throughout the day with his stories and experience in the Hospitality industry.
Would definitely get you guys to come out again to do RCG as well."

Barry O'Farrell announces 'tough' laws to combat alcohol-fuelled violence

Pubs and clubs in Sydney’s CBD will be forced to lock out new customers from 1.30am and cease alcohol trading by 3am under a state government crackdown on alcohol- and drug-related violence.

Premier Barry O’Farrell has also announced bottle shops will have to close their doors at 10pm.

Venues will be subject to a risk-based licensing scheme whereby higher fees will be imposed on venues that trade later, are larger or are in high risk areas, as part of a reform package announced on Tuesday.

As foreshadowed, mandatory minimum sentences of eight years in jail will apply to fatal one-punch attacks involving alcohol and drugs.

But Mr O’Farrell also announced mandatory minimum sentences would be introduced for other drug- or alcohol-fuelled offences, including reckless wounding (three years), assaulting a police officer in the execution of duty (two years), affray (four years) and sexual assault (five years).

Police will be able to test for drugs and alcohol if they suspect someone has committed an alcohol- or drug-fuelled assault.

Parliament will be brought back early next week, probably on Wednesday, to introduce the legislation required to implement the package.

Mr O’Farrell said with the support of the opposition the new mandatory sentencing laws could be in place by February 1, and the rest of the package, including the lockouts and reduced trading hours, by the end of April.

He said the lockouts and 3am licensing restrictions would apply to venues within a new CBD entertainment precinct stretching from Kings Cross to Cockle Bay, The Rocks to Haymarket and Darlinghurst.

2013 - Stage Two reforms

The Liquor Amendment (Kings Cross Plan of Management) Act 2013 was passed by the NSW Parliament on 16 October 2013 and implements Stage Two of the Government's Plan of Management for the Kings Cross precinct.

Key features of this legislation include:

  •     introduction of precinct-wide temporary and long-term banning orders for troublesome patrons
  •     mandatory use of linked ID scanners in high risk venues to identify banned patrons
  •     privacy training required to be undertaken by high risk venue licensees and staff operating ID scanning equipment
  •     mechanisms for staff to have their Responsible Service of Alcohol Competency Card cancelled or revoked for breaches of privacy or RSA obligations
  •     a requirement for approved managers to be present in high risk venues at specified times
  •     quarterly collection of alcohol sales data.

This legislation commences from 6 December 2013.

The Liquor Amendment (Kings Cross Plan of Management) Bill 2013, as passed by the NSW Parliament, is available here.

Privacy Training

From 6 December 2013, licensees and staff operating ID scanners in high risk venues in Kings Cross must successfully complete the privacy course approved by the Director General, NSW Trade & Investment.

This course, which can be undertaken now, focuses on relevant privacy provisions of the NSW liquor laws, as well as the Commonwealth's privacy laws. Further details can be found here. To undertake the course, visit http://olgr.learnflex.net
