From 1 July 2013, the State is no longer responsible for the regulation of trainers offering Responsible Service of Alcohol (RSA) and Responsible Service of Gaming (RSG) courses. This regulation is now a matter for the Commonwealth Government.
Current OLGR RSA and RSG certificates will continue to be recognised as acceptable evidence of training for a three year transitional period from the date of issue.
Following proclamation, approved training course certification will be a Statement of Attainment, provided on completion of a national training course—either ‘Provide Responsible Service of Alcohol’ and/or ‘Provide Responsible Gambling Services’.
Once a Statement of Attainment has been granted, neither the Liquor Act nor the Gaming Machine Act will require renewal of training.
A Statement of Attainment may be available from the Registered Training Organisation (RTO) which originally provided individual Queensland RSA or RSG training. People will have to check with their RTO to see whether the training originally provided met the criteria required for a Statement of Attainment.
