MICKEY Mouse and two of Donald Duck's nephews are all licensed to pull beers in Queensland pubs and clubs.
Security Providers Association (SPA) spokesman Garry Oliver completed Responsible Service of Alcohol (RSA) courses online under Disney characters' names to highlight flaws in Queensland's licensing regulations.
Mr Oliver is a former Queensland Police licensing sergeant who now leads a group representing crowd controllers.
He now holds RSA certificates for Mickey Mouse, Huey and Louie Duck issued by three different government approved organisations.
He has sent a 27-page letter, which includes the certificates, to the Office of Licensing and Gaming Regulation (OLGR) to demand an overhaul of the system.
"There's 113 colleges eligible to issue these and one of them offers four tries for each multiple choice question of which there are four possible answers," Mr Oliver said.
"One of the websites allows you to go back and re-enter the answer."
Mr Oliver said interim certificates were immediately issued and formal ones mailed within seven days.
He said the course, which can take up to four hours to complete in-person, took him less than 40 minutes online and that alone should have set off alarm bells.
Mr Oliver said the OLGR was made aware of problems last year, yet he was still able to obtain certificates a fortnight ago using bogus names.
"If you do it face-to-face you have to fill in a work book in longhand and do an exam and only 20 per cent of it is multiple choice," Mr Oliver said.
"We have an 83-year-old person named Mickey Mouse being issued with an RSA certificate. The ducks are 74-years-old.
"The fact they were completed so quickly should have been flagged."
Mr Oliver twice attempted to register Duey (sic) Duck with both the Academy Hospitality Australia and eTrainu but they were both denied.
"These colleges should be commended," he said.
Mr Oliver said only 13 per cent of RSA certificates issued in 2009 were completed online compared to 75 per cent in 2011.
He said pubs can be fined up to $50,000 for breaches of RSA laws and the ease at which certificates can be obtained is compromising licensees.
"You have 75 per cent of people doing it online in 40 minutes and it compromises hotels and clubs who get fined by OLGR if their staff make a mistake," he said.
A spokeswoman for Clubs Training Australia, which issued an RSA certificate to Huey Duck, said their process was designed to take three to five hours and could be completed over a six-week period.
"As for the names and ages, we don't discriminate against names and ages," the spokeswoman said. "It's very rare for anyone to take 40 minutes.
"Our course complies with the requirement of OLGR ...there's 10 chapters, 141 pages which each student must view for it to unlock, plus there's 20 self assessments throughout the course and there's a 30-question final assessment."
Queensland Hotels Association executive Justin O'Connor said any online course had its faults but he was satisfied with the checks in place for RSAs completed on line.
Attorney General Paul Lucas has been contacted for comment.
