If you hold a current or expired RSA or RCG card from the Office of Liquor, Gambling and Racing (OLGR), you will need to contact the OLGR (1300 024 720) prior to enrolling in an RSA or RCG course. The OLGR will assess your individual circumstances and provide advice on the renewal of your card. If you enrol in an RSA or RCG course before following this process, your interim certificate may be invalid.For more information on RSA/RCG competency card renewals, please visit the Department of Industry - Liquor & Gaming webpage.
This skill set is for personnel involved in the sale, service, and promotional service of alcohol in licensed premises. It also applies to the licensee who is ultimately responsible for managing the responsible service of alcohol.
A TAFE NSW Certificate IV or Diploma could give you up 6 to 12 months advanced standing in a university degree and some Advanced Diplomas offer even more credit.

Why study something again if you already have the skills and knowledge? Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is about helping you get your qualification faster and getting you to where you want to be!
Working with one of our RPL assessors we’ll review your life and work experiences as well as any previous study you may have done to confirm just what we can match up with your current course of study.
Note: Some short, licensing or compliance courses, eg Food Safety for Supervisors or First Aid are not granted RPL as demonstrated competency is required by regulatory authorities.
