Most new liquor licence applicants are required to complete Licensees' First Step (New Entrant Training), a Full day course. Liquor Licence applicants who have not completed the RSA course will be required to attend the RSA course as well as the Licensees' First Step training.

The aim of Licensees' First Step is to provide an overview of Victorian liquor licensing laws and associated issues. This will enable licensees to comply with their legal obligations and contribute to minimising alcohol-related harm in the community.

The course content includes:

Purpose of Victoria's liquor laws Role of the regulatory authorities Understanding / interpreting liquor licence requirements Common offences Managing best practice Licensee forums and accords

Please note: A good understanding of written and spoken English is required to undertake this course;  if not you will require an NATTI interpreter to be present in the class. You will need to advise prior to the course this will occur.

On 1 January 2022, Victorian Commission for Gambling and Liquor Regulations (VCGLR) transitioned to The Victorian Gambling and Casino Control Commission (VGCCC).

All liquor-related forms remain valid until further notice. The VGCCC retains all the powers and responsibilities of the former VCGLR until liquor regulation transfers to the Department of Justice and Community Safety later in the year.

Email addresses and phone numbers are unchanged.
