The Commonwealth Government assumed responsibility for the regulation of the Responsible Service of Alcohol (RSA) and Responsible Service of Gambling (RSG) courses. Queensland has moved from the OLGR RSA and RSG training certificates to the commonwealth national statement of attainment (SOA) as of 1 July 2013.
If you hold an OLGR RSA or RSG certificate they will continue to be recognised as acceptable evidence of training for a three years from date of training. Yes, they are still valid!
Once a statement of attainment has been issued, neither the Liquor Act nor the Gaming Machine Act will require renewal of this training. Some licensees as part of their risk management strategy are wanting staff to continue to update their skills and knowledge every 3+ years to keep up today on regulations and fines.
RSA & RSG bridging course are no longer available. If you did a bridging course and did not have a national SOA then you will need to do the national RSA/RSG training prior to the OLGR RSA/RSG certificate expiry date.
For those who did their training with CFT you received 2 certificates when you finished your training – the OLGR certificate and the national SOA. When your RSA or RSG certificate is about to expire, use your unique ID and password that was sent in your enrolment email to get back into our learning management system.
CFT QLD offers this training either online or for groups.
