NSW RSA Now Available Online

19 September 2012

NSW RSA ONLINE - $115 includes Competency ID Card.

A 12 month trial of online RSA training commenced in July 2012
The online RSA course provides an alternative to traditional classroom training, particularly for students in regional areas and for those who have difficulty attending a classroom.


Online training also provides greater flexibility for training providers and students in terms of how the mandatory training program is delivered.
The online course addresses key RSA issues such as intoxication and underage issues through interviews with industry personnel and regulators, as well as role play. The interactive course allows students to review material, answer questions and visit related websites.


Training providers given approval to conduct online RSA training must show how they will verify the identity of students, assess the competency of students and minimise the potential for fraudulent activity.
Cutting costs and red tape

The online RSA course helps people with paper RSA certificates make the transition to the RSA photo competency card by providing an online training option. It also provides an opportunity to introduce an online RSA bridging course for people with training qualifications obtained in other Australian jurisdictions to work in NSW. The bridging course option is only available where the training provider is satisfied the person has completed approved RSA training in another Australian jurisdiction over the past five years.


A review of online RSA training will be held in mid 2013 to find out if it provides appropriate skills and knowledge for the industry, and if it needs enhancing. The review will also consider extending online training to other vocational training, including responsible conduct of gambling training for the hotel and registered club sectors.
