How to become an approved RSA training provider?
Registered training organisations interested in delivering the RSA course must submit the following forms:
- Approval application to conduct classroom training
- Trainer notification
- Online portal access application
Once approved, the training provider will be notified in writing, including details of the conditions of approval.
Online RSA trial
The NSW Government announced on 21 January 2014 that the trial of Online RSA training, which commenced in 2012, would be suspended. Suspension of the trial is effective from 5 February 2014.
All Registered Training Organisations which have been granted approval to conduct online training courses have been contacted directly by the Office of Liquor, Gaming & Racing. They have been required to cease offering the online course, effective 5 February 2014. This involves discontinuing student access to the course, and not accepting any new students or enrolment fees for the course.
Students who had completed an online RSA training course prior to the suspension coming into force may be granted an Interim RSA certificate.
Students who had enrolled in the online course, but had not commenced or completed it prior to the suspension may be offered a refund, or a transfer into a classroom course, at the discretion of the training organisation.
The suspension does not affect courses conducted in a classroom.
Please note that there will be no refunds of any kind to training organisations as a result of the suspension. This means there will be no refund or pro-rata refund of fees paid for application to conduct the online course.
RSA Trainer approvals
Prospective trainers of the RSA course should apply directly to a registered training organisation.
RTOs must be satisfied that the prospective trainer has:
- A minimum of 3 years supervisory or managerial experience in a hotel or registered club, or such other experience as the Director General considers to be equivalent; and
- A completed Certificate IV in Training and Assessment awarded by a registered training organisation, or such other qualifications as the Director General considers to be equivalent.
The RTO is required to provide notification of its trainers using the trainer notification form.
